Air Arabia - The Way to Fly
Air Arabia operates in India’s airline industry, which is on a high-growth trajectory. Given the high number of travellers India has, it is set to become the third-largest aviation market by 2020 and the largest by 2030. It is currently the ninth-largest civil aviation market in the world, with a market size of around US$ 16 billion.
Significantly, in January 2016, domestic air passenger traffic rose 23 per cent to 7.66 million from 6.25 million during the same month of last year. Passenger traffic during the January-December 2015 increased at a rate of 20.3 per cent to 81.1 million from 67.4 million in the corresponding period a year ago. This reflects the trajectory of growth in the Indian airline sector. By 2020, domestic and international passenger traffic through Indian airports is expected to double to 450 million. According to the UN World Tourism Organisation, more than 50 million Indians will be travelling overseas annually by 2020.
As India recently eased rules for foreign investment in the country's aviation sector with the objective of boosting air travel and developing new airports, significant interest is being shown by foreign airlines in the Indian space.
The new rules allow more than 74 percent foreign investment in brownfield airports, on condition of government approval.
