With 1123 aircraft on order and 620 in use, India has the highest fleet ratio: CAPA

Amongst the 10 largest fleets in the world by country, India has the highest ratio of aircraft on order to aircraft in-service, according to a latest report by CAPA India.  In India, for example, the propensity to fly is 0.1 trips per capita today but by 2037 will rise to 0.4, or roughly four times greater. A survey questioned 20,000 people from 18 countries and found that 56 per cent of the people surveyed coming from emerging countries saw themselves first and foremost as global citizens. In India, this figure was 67 per cent. The BBC suggests this is partly because “…the world as a whole is becoming more prosperous and air travel is becoming more affordable to the rising middle classes.”
