In a recent article for Aviation World Magazine, Sriharshavardhan Doppalapudi, Consultant at Avalon Consulting, discussed the Indian aviation industry’s potential and challenges.
Sriharshavardhan acknowledges the undeniable rapid growth of the Indian aviation sector, despite persistent challenges. Go First’s insolvency underscores operational vulnerabilities, though substantial growth potential exists. India is on the brink of becoming the world’s largest civil aviation market, but per capita air travel remains low. To maintain enduring success, addressing issues like fluctuating fuel costs, regulatory limitations, competition, infrastructure, and seasonality is pivotal. Collaborative endeavors, encompassing tax adjustments and infrastructure enhancement, are imperative to foster a thriving, robust aviation industry that serves both airlines and passengers.
