  • Traffic at Indian airports grew by almost three times of the GDP in the decade preceding 2020. India has become the third largest domestic civil aviation market in the world.
  • The complete suspension of air travel in March 2020 led to a decline of about 70 per cent in passenger traffic during April-December 2020 over April-December 2019. However, with the easing of travel restrictions, passenger traffic started recovering in January 2021. During the period April-August 2021, Indian airports carried over 63 million passengers, significantly higher than the 24 million passengers carried during the corresponding period in 2020.
  • Despite disruptions caused by the pandemic, the airport sector in India is looking for large-scale capacity expansion in the next few years, driven by the construction of greenfield airports and expansion of existing airports. Greenfield airport projects at Navi Mumbai, Jewar, Mopa, Purandar, Bhogapuram and Dholera have made significant headway in the past couple of years.
  • The National Infrastructure Pipeline has also provided for a capex of Rs 900 billion for financial years 2020-25 to scale up the passenger handling capacity. Under this, the construction of new terminals, terminal buildings, runways, taxiways, and parking facilities is being undertaken.
  • Several airports are being developed under the Regional Connectivity Scheme (RCS-UDAN), and terminal buildings are being expanded to improve amenities and passenger handling capacity.
  • Further, the National Monetisation Pipeline has identified a monetisable asset base of 25 airports with an indicative value of over Rs 207 billion. The government aims to privatise 13 airports by March 2022. Besides, the divestment of AAI’s residual stake in Mumbai (26 per cent), Delhi (26 per cent), Hyderabad (13 per cent), and Bangalore (13 per cent) has also been considered under the monetisation pipeline.
  • In order to enable the bundling of airports as a bidding strategy for monetisation, a bill for Amendment to the AERA Act has been introduced during March 2021 in the Lok Sabha to empower AERA to determine tariff for a group of airports.
  • Technology deployment has come to the forefront. Automated processing of passengers is now being looked at by several airports. Contactless screening and plane boarding procedures, biometrics, facial recognition systems, automated video surveillance systems and crowd management solutions are some of the areas that airports have started exploring.
