CAPA India Notes Key Issues That It Will Be Tracking Over The Next 18 Months


CAPA India identified (Oct-2017) a series of critical issues that CAPA has identified in Indian aviation, noting that it would be regularly sharing analysis and research to help shape the industry, enable policy makers to pursue further reforms in the interests of the sector and to support the Prime Minister’s transformational economic agenda over the next 18 months. Key strategic issues are as follows:

  • Likely airport infrastructure constraints, and delays in the construction of new capacity, are becoming a challenge. CAPA India will benchmark how airside and landside productivity is improving, monitor the expansion of existing airports and track greenfield developments;
  • An Independent Airports Commission is required to act as the custodian for planning the national airport system: CAPA India will present a roadmap for how this commission should take over such responsibilities from the Airports Authority of India;
  • A complete revamp of the DGCA is a critical, national priority as the system is almost broken. CAPA India will be conducting a detailed study on the state of aviation safety in India by the end of FY2018, and its structural ability to manage growth.  Read More…
