Shri Jayant Sinha says with proper manpower skilling the civil aviation sector can create about 60 lakh jobs directly and indirectly in the next ten years

The Minister of State for Civil Aviation Shri Jayant Sinha has said that the civil aviation sector has the potential to create about 10 lakh direct jobs in the next ten years. Given a six- fold multiplier effect that jobs in this sector have, this can lead to the creation of about 60 lakh jobs – direct and indirect - in the next ten years. As jobs in the civil aviation sector tend to be of high value, this would go a long way in improving the economic condition of a large number of young people. The Minister also said that the sector can reasonably be expected to grow at an average rate of about 10-12 % over the next ten years. However, to achieve this we first need to fill the gap between the demand for skilled manpower for a huge variety of trades in the sector, and the availability of the same. Stressing upon the need for world class training and skilling, he said that this can raise the employability of our people across the world. Shri Sinha also flagged the issue of non-availability of land to build airports as another constraint for growth of the sector.
