India Civil Aviation Guide reaches out to Middle East market

Posted 22 June 2018 · Add Comment

A new reference book covering civil aviation from the Indian perspective and analysing the industry in surrounding regions has just been published and could have interest for those looking at business in the new southern Asia powerhouse.

The relationship between India and the Middle East is one that is centuries old.

Ancient dhows would ply their trade between the Gulf states and Oman through to Africa and Egypt.
Today it is city pairings between India and the region that captures the headlines as airlines battle it out to support the rising number of the Indian Middle Classes as they take to tourism and visiting the diaspora across the Middle East.
Arab carriers have been accused of holding back the development of the Indian industry but instead there is a growing mutual respect and cooperation between India and the Middle East.
The fact that Saudi Arabia had granted Air India approval to run direct flights from Delhi to Tel Aviv through Saudi airspace is indicative of the change in the air and illustrative of India’s growing position in the region’s airspace.
As India’s aviation industry matures, so there becomes greater opportunity for business to develop whether it be through airlines, airports or aviation services.
And that is why the inaugural issue of SP’s Civil Aviation Yearbook offers so much promise to those embarking on the first stage of doing business on the sub-continent – knowledge.
Compiled by SP Aviation’s editor-in-chief, at almost 300 pages the book is packed with facts and analysis of the Indian aviation scene.
There is a commercial market outlook for Middle East and Asia and an assessment of the regional aviation outlook
It is not just airlines that come under microscope, but business aviation from new and used sales, through to FBOs looking at India and the Middle East.
There is a large Middle Eastern emphasis in the book with the reference section outlining key personnel at the airlines to give the reverse benefit to Indian organisations and companies looking beyond their borders. The book also covers vast knowledge on Asia Pacific too.
For me, the most fascinating section of the book was the Viewpoint on which key opinion formers from organisations like Embraer, Emirates, Gulfstream and Rockwell Collins express their views on the changing aviation scene.
This is the first of its kind for the region and follows the form of SP’s Military Handbook.
At $537.50 per copy it is not something you can take lightly, and air courier charges are costly too but if it is information you require this will save a lot of time on Google or other research to get the information all in one place.
