CIO Review >> Magazine >> January - 2014 issue

The Indian aviation industry has grown at a hasty speed in the last decade. Privatization has opened up gates for many international players to reach out to the large untapped middle class market in India. According to India’s Civil Aviation Secretary, KN Shrivastava, India is the ninth largest civil aviation market in the world and is projected to become the third largest by 2020. Looking at the growth opportunities in India, there are significant acquisitions and mergers taking place with introduction of some low cost air carriers like Deccan Airlines, GoAir, SpiceJet and others. Driven by the drastic increase in the passenger traffic over the last 3 years, almost all Indian airlines are focused to build their capacities assuming the growth would continue over the coming future.
