Mumbai-With hundreds of millions of people joining the global middle-class, the demand for air travel is witnessing an unforeseen upsurge. The International Civil Aviation Organization has predicted a 100 percent increase in global air travel by the year 2030, creating a need for extensive efforts to bring the entire aviation ecosystem to pace. To ride this strong tailwind of growth and pave the way forward for the sector, the Ministry of Civil Aviation, in collaboration with FICCI is organizing a Global Aviation Summit with an overarching theme of Flying for all on 15-16 January 2019 in Mumbai, the financial capital of India.

The global aviation industry is in a high-growth trajectory, ushering an era of rapid expansion. Going forward, the biggest driver of demand will be the emerging economies, which will need to cater for air travel for the nearly 6 billion people. To commensurate this fast growth of the sector, the Global Aviation Summit provides an exclusive platform for collaborative efforts on a global magnitude.
