The New Year is around the corner, with new possibilities and new achievements waiting for us.
The progress of Indian aviation in the year 2010 was very heartening.
  • The Indian aviation industry is one of the fastest growing aviation industries in the world with private airlines accounting for more than 75 per cent of the sector of the domestic aviation market (as of 2006).

    The industry is growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18 per cent.

    The country has 454 airports and airstrips, of which 16 are designated as international airports.

The important mile posts of Indian aviation in the year 2010 can be summed up as-

The Hyderabad International Airport has been ranked amongst the world's top five in the annual Airport Service Quality (ASQ) passenger survey along with airports at Seoul, Singapore, Hong Kong and Beijing.

The Hyderabad International Airport is being managed by a public-private joint venture of the GMR Group, Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad and the State Government of Andhra Pradesh along with the Airports Authority of India (AAI).
  • Mr .Praful Patel, Union Civil Aviation Minister has stated that the Indian aviation sector will become one of the top five civil aviation markets in the world over the next five years

    Currently, India ranks ninth in the global civil aviation market.
  • The Indira Gandhi International Airport of Delhi and the Chattrapati Shivaji International airport of Mumbai alone handle more than half of the air traffic in South Asia.
  • Timothy J Roemer, the US Ambassador to India has said that the US will work with the Indian government and the domestic private sector to make the country an aviation hub.

    Investment opportunities of US$ 110 billion are being envisaged up to 2020 with US$ 80 billion towards new aircraft and US$ 30 billion towards the development of airport infrastructure, according to the Investment Commission of India.
  • As per a new Civil Aviation Requirement (CAR) issued by the DGCA, airlines would have to mandatorily pay a compensation for delay or cancellation of flights or in case the passengers are denied boarding although possessing a confirmed ticket. The regulation would come into effect from August 15, 2010.

    GE Aviation and Air India will jointly invest US$ 90 million to set up a maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility in Mumbai.

    Indocopters Private Ltd, distributor for Eurocopter helicopters in India, is planning to set up a helicopter MRO facility in Bhubaneswar, the company’s fourth service centre in the country.
  • With the luxury travel being affordable to the middle class as well, the air travel has seen a never before increase.
    This has promoted the country's tourism industry and has benefited India's economy and hotel industry. There are more than twenty airports in India that handle international flights today.
    To sum up Aviation has taken off for its flight to customer friendly, development cruise climb. And all of us are on board.
  • So, let us enjoy the flight and welcome the New Year .HAPPY FLYING.
