• India is the ninth largest civil aviation market in the world with a market size of around US$ 16 Billion and the nation aims to be the third largest aviation market by the year 2020 and the largest by 2030. As an antecedent to this vision, the Civil aviation industry has ushered in a new era of expansion, that is driven by factors like low-cost carriers (LCCs), modern airports, Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in domestic airlines, advanced Information Technology(IT) interventions and a growing emphasis on regional connectivity. Although the demand for Air travel is expected to double over the next 20 years, to be able to accommodate this growth, the Global airline industry needs to adapt to challenges like infrastructure, fuel prices, talent and technology to internally to streamline their operations and to reduce costs. For instance, systems that can enable real-time resource planning and allocation lead to greater utilization of resources. Similarly, Airlines need to invest in Tech-enabled engines that are capable of notifying maintenance and operations centers with detailed reports regarding performance issues while an aircraft is still in the air and arranging for a replacement to be commenced upon the landing of the aircraft. Such measures will not only reduce downtime to a great extent but also profoundly improve performance. This will lead to trimming down cost while bolstering passenger satisfaction through frequent on-time arrivals and departures.
