Aviation

As one of the fastest growing transportation sectors across the globe, aviation is a dynamic and constantly evolving industry. Currently, the airline industry carries over 4 billion passengers each year, nearly 61 million tonnes of freights, and creates 11.3 million direct jobs internationally. It directly contributes a staggering US $961.3 billion to the global GDP.

India, with over 460 airports and airstrips, transports more than 316 million people alone. The Indian aviation sector contributes US $72 billion to the GDP. Aviation, in many ways, is the transport industry of the future, with increasingly more of India’s—and the world’s—citizens being able to afford transport by air. This would not have been true even as little as a decade ago.
