“I

t (aviation) is (to overcome) the tyranny of distance,” said the venerable Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew while speaking to aviation

leaders from across the world during the 512008 Singapore Airshow. He might have had his own country in mind but he was referring to Asia in general. The senior statesman pointed out that liberalisation in the aviation sector would come as more countries realised that aviation was the lifeblood of economies. The latest edition of the show, scheduled to take place between February 2-7, 2010, comes at a crucial juncture in the Asia-Pacific region’s aviation sector. While on one hand, the gloom of recession is yet to fade away and on the other are signs of hope. The Singapore show will add excitement and dynamism to the industry. There

the industry was poised to grow strongly in Asia. “I see tremendous growth in Asia,” he had said, “the Chinese will have 200 airports by 2020, and 500 by 2050. They have discovered that despite roads, railways and waterways, air transport provides more connectivity, particularly to the interior regions of the country.” Similar growth, he had said, had also been noticed from India. The Singapore show then will showcase the vitality of Asia in the aviation sector. Though the economic downturn may have slowed the growth of the global aerospace industry, it has not diminished it. Asia’s aircraft fleet size has been projected to grow to 25,000 by 2030 from the 16,500 today. In addition, maintenance,

CRUISING HEIGHTS

CRUISING HEIGHTS is India’s best known monthly aviation magazine with equal interests in air cargo, travel and tourism. In its six years of existence, CRUISING HEIGHTS has received accolades from the Minister of Civil Aviation, Aviation CEOs, Airport Developers, Travel Agents Associations and others for its path-breaking stories. In fact, we have built up a solid and devoted following among policy makers, regulatory authorities like the DGCA, infrastructure developers, airlines, airport developers, travel agents, international tourism boards, global reservation giants, online travel companies, civil servants and a large number of people who follow aviation. One of the first true aviation magazines of the country, CRUISING HEIGHTS was started with the idea of supporting professionals in the airline business to make informed choices on a variety of subjects — from ground handling to cargo to airport development — all of which are transforming the Indian aviation scene in mind-boggling ways.

HOW CRUISING HEIGHTS LOOK AT THE AVIATION BUSINESS In-depth, detailed reportage (with exclusive interviews and special guest columns) on the phenomenal all round progress in the aviation business. We look at all the developments in terms of new airports, growing airline network, more international operations, Greenfield projects, FDI in aviation, helicopter services, and cargo hubs — look at every aspect of the aviation business. Plus exclusive interviews with Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel, Secretary (Civil Aviation) Madhavan Nambiar and a host of other senior officials, including DGCA, Dr Naseem Zaidi.

Till a year back, there were half a dozen MROs being set up in the country and the general perception was that it was a recipe for disaster. Since then there has been a rethink and the MRO business is slowly but surely getting consolidated in the hands of a few big players.

t (aviation) is (to overcome) the tyranny of distance,” said the venerable Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew while speaking to aviation

leaders from across the world during the 512008 Singapore Airshow. He might have had his own country in mind but he was referring to Asia in general. The senior statesman pointed out that liberalisation in the aviation sector would come as more countries realised that aviation was the lifeblood of economies. The latest edition of the show, scheduled to take place between February 2-7, 2010, comes at a crucial juncture in the Asia-Pacific region’s aviation sector. While on one hand, the gloom of recession is yet to fade away and on the other are signs of hope. The Singapore show will add excitement and dynamism to the industry. There

the industry was poised to grow strongly in Asia. “I see tremendous growth in Asia,” he had said, “the Chinese will have 200 airports by 2020, and 500 by 2050. They have discovered that despite roads, railways and waterways, air transport provides more connectivity, particularly to the interior regions of the country.” Similar growth, he had said, had also been noticed from India. The Singapore show then will showcase the vitality of Asia in the aviation sector. Though the economic downturn may have slowed the growth of the global aerospace industry, it has not diminished it. Asia’s aircraft fleet size has been projected to grow to 25,000 by 2030 from the 16,500 today. In addition, maintenance,
