India’s second tier airports: Will modernisation of 35 airports by AAI generate further growth?

Indian airline traffic growth remained above 20% in Jun-2010, the fourth consecutive month that domestic airlines have reported growth in this range. Traffic has been soaring at India’s second tier airports, the non-metros, where extensive modernisation and expansion projects are under way to cope with rising demand. The Indian Government previously identified 35 non-metro airports for upgrade and modernisation works, with initial plans to have all upgrades completed by 2009. Due to the slowdown in traffic related to the global economic recession and issues related to funding, completion was delayed. The revised target is to have the modernisation of all 35 airports completed by 2012.
