The exciting growth potential of aviation in South Asia – and India in particular – along with the challenges that rapid growth can bring, is being put under the microscope at the inaugural Aviation INDIA Summit & Exhibition.

JW Marriott New Delhi is amongst the largest hotel accommodation available in New Delhi, India.

Run in conjunction with India’s Ministry of Civil Aviation and with the support of the country’s regulator, the DGCA, Aviation India and South Asia Summit and Exhibition is organised by Times Aerospace Events, who are known for the hugely successful Aviation Africa and Aviation MENA events.

Aviation INDIA Summit & Exhibition takes place at the JW Marriot in New Delhi Aerocity, on June 12-13.

With a primary focus on India’s air transport industry and under the theme ‘New India Rising’, the summit looks at how India’s air transport industry is going through a remarkable transformation with a laser-focus on long-term growth in the air and on the ground as the national economy reactivates, the middle class continues to grow and spend, and demand for air connectivity soars to new heights.

The country’s airlines, some under new ownership, with strong management teams and ambitious expansion plans, have placed orders for hundreds of single-aisles and twin-aisle jetliners to service a market with a seemingly insatiable desire for travel.

The infrastructure and resulting investment that helps deliver a customer experience to transport increasing passenger numbers is part of the story, with airports, ground service providers, MRO, business aviation operators and the entire supply chain rising to the challenge.

And it is not just India.

The summit will welcome speakers from Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and the Gulf. The event is also developed in partnership with leading associations in the region including MRO, business aviation, and training.

Also, under the theme ‘New India Rising’, the summit looks at how India’s aviation renaissance can achieve global ambitions.

With 700 expected attendees - government officials, regulators, airlines & operators and airport CEOs, major manufacturers, the training industry, and others across the whole supply chain will be in attendance and participating in the two-day discussions.

Aviation INDIA 2024, while celebrating growth, will also focus on some of the challenges and bring together speakers and participants to identify the issues and offer solutions.

MRO is one of these.

The Aviation Week Network (AWN) which produces the world’s top MRO shows in America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East lead the discussions.

Training – AFM, the global intelligence network for the aviation training industry, will host the training segment of the show and look at how India must act if it is to meet the country’s growth targets.

Airline and Airport leaders will look at the unique challenges in the regions. Guests will include airlines from the Gulf and across the Indian subcontinent.

Global experts on sustainability plus industry leaders from manufacturers and organisations will also be involved.

“Networking events play a key role for our exhibitors, airline representatives and summit delegates,” said Times Aerospace Events managing director, Mark Brown. “There is a cocktail welcome reception taking place on 11th and a gala reception on the evening of the 12th.”
