Tourists are expected to flood in and out of India this summer
The ailing Indian aviation industry is set to benefit from an influx of tourists expected to fly to India this summer.
Over the next few months, the number of passengers across Indian airports could rise by as much as 50%, representatives of the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM) have predicted.
While many European travellers are expected to visit the country to see famous landmarks such as the Taj Mahal, ASSOCHAM has indicated that a lot of natives will also be heading for airport departure lounges.
According to the organisation, destinations such as South Africa are likely to be visited by Indian holidaymakers this year.
Travellers must ensure they have a cost-effective
travel insurance policy before embarking on foreign holidays.
ASSOCHAM secretary general Mr D S Rawat said: "With the improved economic situation at home and relatively cheap airfares, more and more people are keen to enjoy their holidays abroad."
Indian tourism chiefs have recently worked along with their French counterparts to develop eco-tourism across the country in a bid to attract even more visitors.
