Ishka+ Originals | India Update: Achieving airline growth and sustainability through India’s airport development plans with Vasudevan S, Partner and Global Sector Lead (Airports), KPMG

In this latest Ishka Original, we look at the role of airport building and development in India in meeting demand for an ever-expanding domestic aviation sector, the importance of achieving regional connectivity and the opportunities for all in the aviation value chain.

The Government of India has huge plans for airport development in the next few years, creating new routes for both domestic and international carriers. We ask several key questions; how does the government’s vision translate into opportunities for airlines and lessors and, indeed, the whole aviation value chain; what measures are being put in place to use airport expansion to grow their own businesses and increase their ‘green’ credentials and perhaps offset some of their operating risks with more airport based earnings; and what opportunities are there for international investors and developers?
