India Civil Aviation Minister Vayalar Ravi stated Air India would likely receive an additional equity infusion of INR12 billion (USD268 million) with a group of ministers (GoM) deciding to prepare a proposal on the issue soon (PTI/Economic Times/The Hindu Business Line/The Telegraph, 23-Jun-2011). “The GoM will bring a proposal to release Rs 1,200 crore of equity and place it before the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs within a short time-frame,” Mr Ravi said. The GoM also decided to establish a committee to examine the turnaround and financial restructuring plans of Air India and submit a report within six weeks for a review. This committee will also examine the plan to restructure the airline’s debt.

CAPA India Aviation Outlook 2017/18: Surging traffic but infrastructure constraints become critical
India’s status as the fastest growing aviation market in the world creates tremendous opportunities. But risks are also heightened as the inadequacy of India’s infrastructure planning, a fast emerging shortage of skills, flawed policy initiatives, and weak regulatory oversight threaten to become major stumbling blocks. The potential is enormous; but unless government bites the bullet, it will be seriously constrained.
This report is a short extract from CAPA's comprehensive 200-page India Aviation Outlook Report FY2017/18, to be released in Feb-2017 at the CAPA India Aviation Summit. The Outlook includes CAPA's projections for traffic, capacity, yields and earnings and presents fleet induction plans, detailed operating and financial analysis and risk assessments of each Indian airline and airport operator.
