The air transport industry is expanding, Aviation
provides the only rapid worldwide transportation
network, generating economic growth, creating
jobs, and facilitating international trade and
The most recent estimates suggest that demand for air transport will increase by an average of 4.3% per annum over the next 20 years.
If this growth path is achieved by 2036 the air transport industry will then contribute 15.5 million in direct jobs and $1.5 trillion of GDP to the world economy. Once the impacts of global tourism are considered, these numbers could rise to 97.8 million jobs and $5.7 trillion in GDP.
By mid-2030s no fewer than 200,000 flights per

According to a research report by Morgan Stanley, the Indian aviation industry is likely to recover to 80% of the pre-COVID levels (as of 2020). Between October 2021 and December 2021, ~92 million domestic passengers are scheduled to fly in FY22.
Under RCS-Udan scheme, approximately 34,74,000 passengers were flown and 335 routes were awarded during 2019, covering 33 airports (20 unserved, 3 underserved, 10 water aerodromes).
Due to rise in demand in air travel, India will need 2,380 new commercial airplanes by 2038. India plans to open 100 additional airports by 2024.
