The 12th edition of Aero India will take place from 20th – 24th Feb, 2019 at Yelahanka Air Force Station, Bengaluru. Aero India 2019 will provide a significant platform in bolstering business opportunities in International aviation sector. A rapidly growing economy and opening up of defence production to private sector, have given a major fillip to the defence industry in India. It has also become a hub for defence businesses in Asia. The logo for Aero India 2019 is inspired by the Tejas Light Combat Aircraft (LCA). The tagline for Aero India 2019, “The Runway to a Billion Opportunities” was created to communicate India’s value proposition in addressing the immense opportunities in the Aerospace and Aviation sectors in India today.
The tagline underlines India’s status as an emerging hub for the global aerospace industry and draws attention to the investment opportunities under Make in India. From the acquisition of 110 multi-role fighter jets and 111 naval utility helicopters to the indigenous development of the light combat helicopter, India’s aerospace sector has crossed an inflection point. The tagline was also created while keeping in mind that the Civil Aviation industry in India has emerged as one of the fastest growing industries in the country. With Passenger Traffic in India likely to increase to 350 million in 2020 India is poised to become the 3rd largest aviation market in the world. Similarly, India’s fleet of 430 civil aircraft will double in the next 5 to 7 years and the MRO sector is projected to increase from US$ 700 Mn to US$ 1.5 Bn by 2020.
