360 India Report 2016

Despite its meteoric rise up the air travel market rankings, India’s aviation industry is largely untapped with huge growth opportunities.

How much and how fast this potential is realized depends to some extent how quickly airlines and airports embrace the efficiencies and passenger convenience that advanced IT systems and services bring.


With the world’s fastest-growing aviation sector, India is on the cusp of becoming a leader in air travel.

Passenger levels are expected to more than double to 370 million by 2020, by which time India will be the world’s third largest aviation market.

Managing capacity at airports to keep pace with passenger demand is a major challenge and limited infrastructure means many airports are already operating above their design limits.

So how is Indian aviation responding to the demands of passengers and these challenges?

This 360 degree report looks at the key areas of IT investment being made by airlines and airports and whether these align to the expectations of passengers in India.

Report topics include:

  • Preparing for self-service baggage
  • Mobile future
  • Sensor tech & IoT
  • Big data

  • IATA Resolution 753
