As per AAI data, Indian aviation has crossed 100 million mark for the first time in a fiscal year; India's current fiscal year runs from April 2007-March 2008. As a reference, USA has around 680 million passengers every year.

For the period April 2007 to February 2008, there were a total of 107 million passengers--80 million domestic and 27 million international. There is one more month to go this fiscal year; at the current rate Indian aviation will end with around 116 million passengers.

There were 73 million passengers in year 2005-06, and 96 million in 2006-2007. Currently, aviation growth has declined to around 11-12% compared to around 30% a year back. The current slowdown has to do with higher fares due to fuel costs; the economy is expected to grow around 7-8%.

At the current growth rates, Indian aviation should reach around 200 million mark by fiscal year 2010-2011.

The top five airports are:
BOM
DEL
MAA
BLR
HYD

BLR with its higher growth rate should displace MAA from no. 3 spot by next fiscal year.

Quoting LAXDESI (Thread starter):



BLR with its higher growth rate should displace MAA from no. 3 spot by next fiscal year.

BLR's new airport will also remove the slot freeze for international flights - a capacity constraint . But Chennai is riding a wave of economic growth, and MAA, with an airport upgrade, could still prevail.

If the rate of expansion is reduced so much due to high fuel prices then it can only get worse, what then all the Airbus's and Boeings on order?

Most airlines are deferring delivery of aircrafts to manage the slowdown.
