The fourth Indian Business Aviation Expo (IBAE) will be take place once again in Delhi in 2013. The 2012 event saw a 40% increase in attendance from 2011,evidence of the growing importance of the sector. Attendees at the 2012 event heard from many of the country’s business aviation leaders.
India is currently the 9th largest aviation market in the world, but is expected to become 3rd largest by 2017 (based on passenger numbers). Although the current GA industry in India is valued at $220 million and is expected to be worth $320 million by 2017, India has only 100 of its 449 airports operational. The Indian Government has pledged to invest $14.65 billion in airports and associated infrastructure by 2017, including $1.5 billion set aside for non-metro airports.
