Civil Aviation Minister Scindia said the government is placing special emphasis on creating capacity in the country’s fast-growing aviation market by changing its role as a regulator to a facilitator.
Speaking at the Wings India 2024 curtain-raiser in New Delhi on Thursday, the Union Minister for Civil Aviation and Steel said the government has adopted a three-pronged strategy to create capacity, remove bottlenecks and streamline processes, which has helped the sector bounce back. From 74 airports to 148 airports in the last nine years. Setting a target for the industry, he said the number of airports, helipads and waterways will rise to more than 200 in the next three to four years.
Sharing his thoughts on the growing potential of the industry to become the world’s leading aviation market by 2047, the minister added, “As India moves from Amrit Kaal to Shatabdi Kaal (2047), Indian aviation is also transforming from the third position. largest domestic market/eighteenth largest international market/seventh largest domestic and international market to become the largest aviation market in the world”. Reiterating the government’s commitment to create an international aviation hub in the country, he said a number of aviation and open skies agreements between India and other countries would help this growth objective.
