India’s aviation sector is experiencing significant growth, with the government planning a hefty investment in airports and aircraft to meet the increasing demand for air travel. The country’s major airports are seeing a surge in passenger numbers, and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) predicts that India will become the world’s third-largest air passenger market in the next decade.
With these positive trends, India’s airports are faced with new challenges in areas such as infrastructure, sustainability, and technology. Sonu Verghese, Customer Partner at Kyndryl India, emphasizes the critical role that technology will play in shaping India’s aviation sector over the next decade.
As air travel becomes more accessible and affordable for a larger segment of the Indian population, airports must adapt to meet the diverse needs of passengers, businesses, and communities. Embracing digital transformation and innovation will be essential for airports to provide a seamless and personalized end-to-end experience and to scale to deliver complete air mobility in the future.
