- In the past decade, Indian airports have witnessed fast paced growth in traffic. Traffic has almost grown three times the GDP. The burgeoning numbers have opened up a vista of opportunities in the sector.
- However, the Covid-19 pandemic has severely impacted the sector. The complete suspension of travel adversely impacted the revenue streams of airports. While the Airports Authority of India (AAI) deferred the payment schedules, private operators sought relief in the form of moratoriums on debt obligations and waivers on the payable revenue share.
- The AAI reported a reduction in revenue from about Rs 29 billion during April-June 2019 to Rs 2.3 billion during April-June 2020. Overall, traffic volumes declined by about 75 per cent from about 1.27 million during April-September 2019 to 0.3 million during April-September 2020. With the resumption of flights in a calibrated manner, some signs of recovery are visible. Passenger traffic has increased from about 95,000 in May 2020 to 240,000 in September 2020.
- Airport privatisation is one area that continued to gain steam even amidst the disruption caused by the pandemic. The first round of privatisation of Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Lucknow, Guwahati, Thiruvananthapuram and Mangaluru airports has been completed. Under the government’s stimulus package, six airports have been identified for the second-round bidding for operations and maintenance on a PPP basis. An additional investment by private players in 12 airports in the first and second rounds is expected to bring in around Rs 130 billion. Another six airports will be put out for the third round of bidding.
- While the existing airports are currently operating far below their capacity, the government is going ahead with its plan to operationalise 100 additional airports by 2023-24. The report of the Taskforce on National Infrastructure Pipeline FY 2020-2025 has identified airport projects worth Rs 1.43 trillion, highlighting plenty of investment opportunities.
- The Regional Connectivity Scheme (RCS) continues to play a major role in adding new airports and routes to the aviation landscape. As of October 2020, 50 unserved and underserved airports with 285 routes have been added under UDAN.
- In addition, greenfield airport projects at Navi Mumbai, Jewar, Mopa, Purandar, Bhogapuram and Dholera have made significant headway despite disruptions on account of Covid-19. Besides, new capacity has been created with the commissioning of the Kannur, Durgapur, Shirdi, Pakyong and Kalaburagi airports.
- Meanwhile, capacity utilisation is being improved through automation and deployment of new technology-enabled solutions at airports. Digital processing of passengers at airports called “Digi Yatra” and upgraded versions of the AirSewa 2.0 web portal and mobile app are some of the noteworthy initiatives in this area.
- The Covid-19 outbreak has also brought the concept of physical distancing to the forefront. For most airports, technology solutions sand innovative equipment have come to the rescue. Contactless plane boarding procedures are already being followed. This has highlighted the urgent need to deploy automated video surveillance systems and crowd management solutions
- The mission of this conference is to highlight the recent trends and developments, analyse the impact of Covid-19 on projects, investments and operations, identify the upcoming and new opportunities, and deliberate upon the potential solutions and future strategies for the revival of the sector. The conference will also showcase the most noteworthy projects and promising technologiesin the current times.
