Aviation India

This week will see leaders from across the aviation sector gather in New Delhi for the inaugural Aviation India Summit and Exhibition, which is taking place on Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 June.

Under the theme New India Rising: How India’s aviation renaissance can achieve global ambitions, the summit will address the key issues and challenges the region faces from airport infrastructure, private-public partnerships, workforce challenges and sustainability goals.

Conference Chair, Alan Peaford MBE, said: “These regional summits have proved successful in other parts of the world such as the Middle East and Africa, where demand for air travel has risen exponentially and the industry has had to find ways to collaborate and cooperate in order to support airline orders and to bring direct economic benefit to the countries where they operate.”

Regional Gateway Editor, Chloe Greenbank, will be moderating a panel of airport speakers with Hari Marar, Bangalore Airport’s CEO and Kiran Jain, COO Noida International Airport addressing how airports are navigating the landscape of India’s airport development. ICAO Airport Consultant and former CEO Indira Gandhi Airport, Inderjit Singh, AI SATS VP & Head of Operations, SITA’s President Asia Pacific, Sumesh Patel and ICF Manager Aviation, Meghna Goradia will also join the panel to discuss the challenges and opportunities from ground handling, infrastructure constraints and biometric technology to reimagining the passenger experience and net zero targets.

“The involvement of the professional industry associations for MRO, airports and business aviation along with the Federation of Aviation Industry in India (FAII) has been vital for the show,” Peaford added. “Industry needs a shared voice if it is to achieve what is expected of it as we witness the passenger growth and airline orders that need to be supported.”

With more than 500 delegates already registered for the inaugural event and additional delegates expected to register on the day, Mark Brown, Managing Director of Times Aerospace Events, expressed his enthusiasm for the event saying: “This may be the first of the Aviation India events but it won’t be the last.”
