New Delhi: The strong recovery in India's aviation sector will be sustained by reducing travel apprehension, a significant fall in Covid infection rates, and an increased immunisation effort, according to aerospace firm Boeing India.
In addition, lessening regulations and tendencies such as "revenge travel" are predicted to increase air passenger numbers. Notably, the trend indicates that the industry's pent-up demand is gradually being converted into a more sustainable growth pattern. Domestic traffic figures have recovered and are now comparable to those seen in 2019," said Boeing India President Salil Gupte.
"An increase in vaccination penetration will enhance domestic traffic first, which is now driving the recovery." As a result, the good benefits of the rapid immunisation campaign will eventually lead to the international sector's opening.
"There are places where 70 percent or more of persons over the age of 12 have been vaccinated, but there are many others where rates are far lower." "As and when vaccination penetration rises, the overseas segment will open up and resume operations at a near-normal level." He also stated that India remains one of the company's most important global markets.
