India is one of the fastest growing aviation markets in the world. After liberalization of the Indian aviation sector, the industry had witnessed entry of the privately owned full service airlines and low cost carriers. However, the growth in the sector has slowed with the rise in fuel prices and decline in passenger traffic. The increasing losses of domestic carriers are expected to lead to some consolidation and regulatory changes in coming years.
