Aviation Industry: An overview
Considering a career in aviation? Don’t think twice.
The Indian civil aviation industry, which grew at a remarkable rate of 22% in FY17, is all set to become the third largest in the world by 2020. With increased governments spending on aviation infrastructure and massive investments coming through the Public-Private Partnership model, the airlines are expected to carry about 370 million passengers in 2020; double of its current passenger traffic.
Higher passenger traffic would clearly mean higher demand for skilled professionals in the industry and lead to a proportionate rise in the number of job opportunities. UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Naagrik), a scheme launched by the Indian government to make air travel affordable for common man has further widened the scope of employment in this sector.Rapidly growing Indian tourism is also attracting an increasing number of domestic and international passengers and serving as a key contributor to the industry’s progress.By 2035, the sector is expected to raise 4 million jobs, of which 0.8-1 million shall be direct employment opportunities and 3 million shall be indirect opportunities, as per a study conducted by the Civil Aviation Ministry.
Thus, as a student studying aviation, one can expect rewarding jobs in one of its many spheres: administration and operations, ground handling, pilot, cabin crew, air hostess, customer service, ticket management and medical tourism.The employment scope extends beyond India and stretches to the global aviation sector, which has a total economic impact of USD 2.7 trillion and supports 62.7 million jobs worldwide. As the current global aviation network comprising of 1400 airlines having a combined fleet of 26,000 aircrafts and travelling about 49 billion kilometres annually keeps growing, there certainly can be no better industry to settle down in.
