Civl Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju has lauded the Airports Authority of India (AAI) for conceptualising India's first business magazine entirely dedicated to the sector.
"Civil aviation is not only one of the fastest growing sectors of the Indian economy but one of the most strategic ones too as it plays a crucial role in improving transport linkages to facilitate faster and smoother movement of people and goods," he said at the launch of the Airports India Business Magazine (AIBM) here on Thursday evening.
"Many airstrips in India are being used for grazing cattle and we need to come out of this scenario. For this to happen the circulation of information is very important and this magazine will help in this," Raju added.
The magazine will have diverse and updated content, including in-depth reports, analyses as well as interviews with key players in the various segments of the civil aviation business.
With a print run of 75,000, the 84-page magazine will bear a modern, European look with Indian content and would be published every quarter by Paris-based Media India Group in association with the AAI.
