“India is soon going to be the 7th largest business travel market in the world and the aviation boom in India is most certainly supporting the growth in business travel. Business travellers are now more willing to spend a little extra for a premium experience which has led to a demand for both premium and business class travel,” says Sunny Sodhi, Managing Director, FCM Travel India.

“Domestic air capacity has increased more than 3 pc but due to the demand in travel, we have seen average ticket prices increase by 9 pc which is attributed to a much stronger economic growth and a general increase in demand for travel. Popular domestic routes for business travel include Delhi to Mumbai, Mumbai to Delhi and Bangalore to Mumbai,” adds Sodhi.

“International air capacity has also increased by 14 pc due to India’s growing aviation sector hence, however, average international airfares have softened by 15 pc which is a general global trend of yields decreasing across airfares,” adds Sodhi.
