Government approves civil aviation policy

The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government approved the country’s first National Civil Aviation Policy for increasing air connectivity. This is the first time since Independence that an integrated Civil Aviation Policy has been brought out by the Ministry of Civil Aviation. The policy allowing new domestic airlines to fly abroad quickly and opening up the skies for European and South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) countries.

The policy aims:
1. India to become 3rd largest civil aviation market by 2022 from 9th.
2. Domestic ticketing to grow from 8 crore in 2015 to 30 crore by 2022.
3. Airports having scheduled commercial flights to increase from 77 in 2016 to 127 by 2019.
3. Cargo volumes to increase by 4 times to 10 million tonnes by 2027.
4. Taking flying to masses – enabling Indians to fly at Rs. 2,500 per hour under regional connectivity scheme at unserved airports.
5. Requirement of 5 years of domestic flying for starting international operations removed.
6. Flexible and liberalized ‘open skies’ and ‘code share’ agreements.
7. Promoting ‘Make in India’ in Civil Aviation Sector.
8. Ensuring availability of quality certified 3.3 lakh skilled personnel by 2025.
9. Development of greenfield airports and heliports.
10. Enhancing ease of doing business through deregulation, simplified procedures and e-governance.


So let’s do:
1. 
Who is the Union  Civil Aviation minister

2. Civil Aviation Policy has been approved by whom?
