Talk about one industry that’s growing by leaps and bounds in India, aviation gives a tough beating to most others. The market is expected to cater to 478 million passengers by 2036. * And India seen as the third largest aviation market by 2025. According to global airlines’ body IATA, India has been successfully winning the crown for being the world’s fastest growing domestic aviation market for the three straight years till 2017. **
An important factor behind this burgeon is government schemes like UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik) and NABH Nirman. While the first aims to connect 56 unserved airports and 31 unserved helipads across the country, the latter targets to expand airport capacity by more than five times to handle a billion trips in a year.
What does this massive expansion translate to? Well, to start with, there are going to be an enormous number of jobs – almost 2.5 to 5 lac job opportunities are being created by the aviation sector. As planned under UDAN, leading airlines such as Vistara & Indigo are procuring more aircraft to fill the supply & demand gap in tier 2 & 3 cities. This will give a major boom to jobs in customer service, operations, logistics, airport management, retail, medical tourism, and many more sectors. If the aviation market excites you, you could easily pursue it. The best way is to get your undergraduate & postgraduate degree in aviation.
