Emphasising the importance of information and applauding efforts to put the focus on civil aviation industry, Union Civil Aviation Minister, P. Ashok Gajapathi Raju, launched the maiden issue of Airports India Business Magazine (AIBM) at an event in New Delhi on Thursday.
“I am happy that this magazine is concentrating on aviation. People used to travel even before aircrafts were invented; they have been travelling through ages. But, probably comfortable travel has made it happen in numbers, which one couldn’t think of earlier. If there is any country that has space to grow, I think it is India. There is a lot of potential for aviation as the sector has a multiplier effect in the economy. Let us share, let us grow and let us be second to no country in the world,” said Minister Raju, while addressing the audience at the event.
AIBM, India’s first business magazine entirely dedicated to the civil aviation industry, aims at enlightening readers about civil aviation and infrastructure business and also about the latest developments in the Indian aerospace and future plans of the civil aviation ministry, with in-depth reports, analyses and interviews with key players in the various segments of the civil aviation business.
AIBM will be widely circulated by the AAI in all Indian airports, lounges, VVIP areas, along with business shows and meetings, where civil aviation is in prime focus across the country. Serving as an important source of latest and credible information for this sector, within a few months, the magazine will also be distributed internationally, notably in Europe and North America, which are the key centres of global aviation business.
