Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju on Wednesday said the nation would soon emerge as the third largest civil aviation market by 2022.
Raju took to Twitter minutes after the Union Cabinet cleared the national civil aviation policy that has, in a way, seen major reforms in the aviation sector.
“India will be the 3rd largest civil aviation market by 2022. To achieve this, we need right intentions, vision, planning and execution,” Raju tweeted, and followed it with another, praising the NDA government.
“NDA govt clears India’s first ever integrated National Civil Aviation Policy. This will be a game-changer for the sector,” he said.
The National Civil Aviation Policy introduces a slew of passenger-friendly measures including capping of airfares at Rs 2,500 for an hour-long flight.
The Civil Aviation Ministry had sent the civil aviation policy to Cabinet for approval on June 3. L.C. Greenwood Authentic Jersey
