Over the last 17 years, CAPA India has completed close to 200 advisory projects across the aviation value chain, including more than 20 engagements focused on regional aviation.

We have developed end-to-end business and financial plans for multiple start-up regional and commuter carriers, conducted detailed aircraft evaluation studies, negotiated aircraft orders, developed long-term regional fleet forecasts for an OEM, and conducted extensive research on regional aviation policy and regulations.  

For a market like India, where hundreds of millions of people live in smaller towns and cities spread across a vast landmass, regional connectivity is essential for trade, tourism, and social networks. And yet, regional aviation has struggled to take-off in India. In this webinar, we will review the regional aviation ecosystem to understand why this is the case. Key questions to be considered include:

  • What are the key success factors for a regional airline in India?
  • What are regional airports, and are they viable?
  • Has the Regional Connectivity Scheme (UDAN) been effective?
  • What other policy and regulatory initiatives does the sector require?
  • What can India learn from the experience of regional aviation in other markets?

Critical issues addressed in this webinar

Based on our research and analysis, CAPA India will present its outlook and recommendations to support a viable regional aviation sector, which will be pressure-tested in the second half of the webinar by a panel of industry experts.
