Massive job opportunities in aviation sector

New Delhi: A growing civil aviation sector can generate at least 9.77 lakh direct, and around 30 lakh indirect jobs by 2035, a study conducted for the Civil Aviation Ministry has said.

In a best case scenario, it could rise to 11.21 lakh jobs at a time the number of passengers are likely to rise to at least 876 million, 4.6 times the volume (190.1 million) last year. The cargo volume is expected to increase to 9.16 million tonne from 2.5 million tonne at present, while the aircraft movements are expected to grow at 8 per cent during 2015-35 and reach 75.6 lakh in 2035.

The findings are part of a draft report prepared by ICRA Management Consultancy Services for the ministry, which wanted a “comprehensive” skill gap analysis and formulate a future road map for skill development in the sector.

“The industry is expected to maintain the momentum as the outlook for the Indian has been positive owing to good Indian GDP growth of 6.5 per cent, increase in the middle-class population and decrease in global oil prices. The growth in the industry will lead to a significant requirement for skilled human resources,” it said.
