2017 was indeed an incredible year for aviation. Carriers the world over saw profits - and quite large ones at that - from passenger as well as cargo operations. While established aircraft manufacturers delivered a large number of planes, Russia and China got their act together to showcase their brand new single-aisle planes. There was also a fair amount of politics: the Airbus succession, the Bombardier-Airbus tie-up and, of course, the US Big Three versus the Middle East Big Three. 2017 was the year when IndiGo achieved a milestone that Indian carriers dream of: 1000 flights a day. It was also the year when the government's vision of letting the common Indian fly was realised through its Regional Connectivity Scheme. There were the odd blips of instances where fliers were harassed and humiliated. Cruising Heights takes a close look at the year gone by.
CRUISING HEIGHTS is India's best known monthly aviation magazine with equal interests in air cargo, travel and tourism. In its four years of existence, Cruising Heights has received accolades from the Minister of Civil Aviation, Aviation CEOs, Airport Developers, Travel Agents Associations and others for its path-breaking stories.One of the first true aviation magazines of the country, Cruising Heights was started with the idea of supporting professionals in the airline business to make informed choices on a variety of subjects from ground handling to cargo to airport development-all of which are transforming the Indian aviation scene in mind-boggling ways. Later, due to the interest it generated and in response to demands from the travel and tourism industry stakeholders we have targeted the general reader-the educated Indian who is keen to be an informed Indian-to know what's happening in the business.
