India’s aviation market to be third largest by ’27

India’s aviation market to be third largest by ’27

With its consistent double-digit growth in domestic passenger traffic, India set to be the third largest aviation market in the world by 2027.
In the next ten years then, the India’s aviation market will generate close to 2.6 million direct, indirect and induced jobs, said a report released by Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (CAPA) on Friday.

“The current staffing, as on FY 2017 is 1,97,309 which is expected to reach 4,32,021 by FY 27 and all of this would be direct jobs,” said the CAPA report. At the top of the rung are vacancies for the job of commercial pilots in airlines. Currently, India has 6,772 pilots and by FY 2027 it would need 16,802, said the CAPA report. The growth in demand for cabin crew jobs will be more than double with the current 11,000 cabin crew positions to grow to 26,325 in a decade. As for maintenance engineers, there will be 34,972 posts, up from the current 14,220.

In all, there will be a 142 per cent growth in jobs with a total of 1,65,533 posts for jobs of pilots, flight attendants, engineers, administration and management staff in the Indian commercial airline and general aviation industry (including charter aircraft, flying clubs, private aircraft) by 2027.
Then there will be 2,66,488 jobs in other aviation fields like airport operations and management, ground handling, cargo and warehousing, commercial, retail, fire, security, air traffic control, etc. Currently, there are 1,20,006 jobs in this category, said the CAPA report.

The need of the hour is massive investment in training and education infrastructure, the report said, adding the state of India’s aviation training was significantly below par — both in infrastructure standards of training and quality of instructors. “Indian aviation system spends on training is almost negligible,” it said, adding that most of the current spends are focused on training driven by regulatory compliance.

“Poor spends on training is leading to system-wide inefficiency-leading to sub-optimal productivity,” it added.
