The growing domestic market, along with continued liberalisation of policy and regulation, and the National Civil Aviation Policy (NCAP) in place, has set India’s aviation sector on a robust growth path. At present, India is the ninth largest aviation market in the world, and is likely to be the third largest by 2020. Factors such as greater affordability, declining air fares, increased competition among airlines, greater use of technology, growing fleet size, etc., have aided the sector’s growth in recent times.

The year 2016-17 saw India emerge as the fastest growing major aviation market, aided by economic growth and low fuel prices. After increasing by 18.3 per cent in 2016-17 vis-a-vis 2015-16, passenger traffic growth is being sustained during 2017-18.

On the policy front the biggest development, the biggest development has been the successful launch of the RCS under the purview of the National Civil Aviation Policy (NCAP). In the first round of RCS, Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) awarded 128 regional routes to five airlines - Alliance Air, SpiceJet, Turbo Megha, Air Odisha and Air Deccan.

The financial performance of airlines improved during 2015-16, with five major carriers, including Air India, reporting operating profits. The trend is expected to be maintained in 2016-17.

A major concern for the aviation industry today is mounting passenger demand unmatched by requisite capacity augmentation. The financial viability of the entire airline sector is in question. Improvement in airline financials over the past one and half years is almost entirely due to the reduction in fuel prices. Inadequacy of passenger facilities is another grey area. However, growth will depend on certain factors such as ensuring that safety, security and their oversight remains paramount, availability of skilled resources, and continued investment in airport and terminal capacity.
