‘India Will Need 2,300 Aircraft In 20 Years’


On the sidelines of the Global Aviaiton Summit that was held here earlier this week, Dinesh Keskar, Boeing’s Senior Vice President-Asia Pacific and India, spoke to The Sunday Guardian about Boeing’s vision and forecast about the Indian aviation market. Excerpts:

Q: As one of the major players in the aviation industry, how do you look at this Global Aviation Summit being organised in India?

A: India has come a long way in aviation history; it is quite impressive to see such a great response that it has received from the world—over 1,000 delegates are present here, 800 of them are from 83 different countries and it is a first-of-its-kind event here in India. This summit will help put across a message about how great the Indian market has been and how exponentially it has been growing. It also shows how India will be the third largest aviation market in the world in the near future.
