Over the last decade, the aviation industry in the country has grown significantly, with the domestic air travel market seeing the fastest growth worldwide. By 2030, India is expected to overtake China and the United States as the world's third-largest air passenger market according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA). Therefore, to cater for the rising air traffic, the Government of India has been working towards increasing the number of airports. As of 2020, India had 153 operational airports and by FY40 the country has envisaged increasing the number of operational airports to 190-200. Further, the number of airplanes is expected to reach 1,100 by 2027.

Cyber Security Programmes -
Today, antivirus programs and firewalls are no longer able to stop cyber-attacks as they are on the rise, and companies and institutions no longer have to worry about "if" an attack will take place but rather "when". The concept of cyber security encompasses everything that pertains to protecting our data from cyber attackers who wish to steal this information and use it for malicious purposes.
Cyber security courses are a need of the hour and GMRAA understands the importance of providing the students with the highest quality training in this field.
