The Indian Civil Aviation sector is one of the fastest growing aviation sectors in the world and aims to become the largest by 2030. India is building new airports and expanding the existing ones to meet the growing demand via public private partnership (PPP) mode. Factors like rising low-cost carriers (LCCs), development of modern airports, 100 percent Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in scheduled airlines, advanced Information Technology (IT) interventions and growing emphasis on regional connectivity, are driving an upward trend in the Indian Civil Aviation industry.

Factors like rising low-cost carriers (LCCs), development of modern airports, 100 percent Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in scheduled airlines, advanced Information Technology (IT) interventions and growing emphasis on regional connectivity, are driving an upward trend in the Indian Civil Aviation industry.

Emphasis has been laid on improving connectivity to priority areas like the North East, Jammu & Kashmir, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Andaman & Nicobar Islands and Lakshadweep by introducing more operational flexibility and promoting helicopter operations. India’s airport infrastructure is undergoing modernization with the installation of state-of-the-art facilities, expansion of existing airports and construction of new greenfield airports. With policy support and focus on Make in India, the government is also determined to develop the Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) industry by giving tax exemptions, faster clearances and land provision. The development of tourism, trade and travel has contributed to increased passenger traffic in India.
