Barring the exception of recession, it can be said that the civil aviation industry has witnessed a sea-change in India. Gone are the days, when passengers traveling via air had to depend upon the national carriers of the country, to make their trip. Today, with the advent of private airlines and their subsidiary budget carriers, traveling via air is not just confined to business and leisurely travelers. Due to the drastic development of the industry, over the last few years, airports in India also have been modernized. In the past few years, there has been a revolutionary change in the ground services provided by the leading airports of the country.
Both domestic and international airports have tried to fulfill the requirements of the passengers, waiting to board their flights. To handle the massive growth of the airline industry in India, new and modern airports have come all over the country. International air travel has also witnessed a great upsurge in recent times. Presently, there are as many as 126 airports in India, which includes 11 international, 89 domestic and 26 civil enclaves at Defense airfields. All the airports in India are managed by Airports Authority of India. Go through our related section to get information on the airports in India.
