According to Kapi Kaul, Chief of CAPA India, India's domestic aviation sector is currently ranked third in the world. But, India is not even counted among the top-10 countries on international routes. His ranking is 18th. The aviation sector currently needs reforms so that it can do better on international routes. Besides, they will have to increase their capacity to connect more and more people with air travel.
Per capita consumption of seats in India is very low

India has become a 4 trillion dollar economy. Our next goal is to become a 5 trillion dollar economy. We should think about competing with America in the aviation sector. For this economic progress, it is very important to strengthen the aviation sector.
Privatization of Air India is a historic decision
Despite many challenges, the decision to hand over Air India to private hands two years ago was historic. This has given new wings to the domestic aviation sector. Also, this was a big improvement made in this sector. The next decade is full of possibilities for us. The aviation sector should gear up for this.
Number of international passengers increased at Indian airports
According to statistics, the number of international passengers has increased at Indian airports. There has been a 10 percent increase in it in 2019 as compared to 2004.
