Funding for the fair has been approved by the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry and the fair will take place at the India Expo Centre Mart, in Noida, from 22-24 November 2022.

The Indian Airport Authority has announced plans for significant investments and the government expects to privatise up to 35 airports. For this reason, GATE is demonstrating its commitment in the Asian subcontinent with IndiAirport as a part of the German Government’s foreign trade fair programme.

Managing director of GATE, Jens Reinhard, said: “It wasn’t just yesterday that we set our sights on India as an important market. After all, civil aviation is one of the country’s fastest growing Industries.”

In India, the PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry is the patron of the fair, while IFWexpo Heidelberg are organising the fair. The company will also a hold a panel discussion creating a link for contact between the German industry and the Indian airport authorities.

The fair is expected to draw in attention from Indian airport authorities and private operating companies, with a total of 3,000 visitors and 100 exhibitors expected.

Studies suggest that India could become the third largest market within the aviation industry by 2024.

Harald Jentsch, head of airports and baggage screening and head of air cargo screening at threat detection and security screening firm Smith Detection, said: “In addition to the size of the Indian market, the speed of development and appetite for innovation is also of particular importance. Both the regulators and the airports as core customers are extremely progressive and ambitious in their thinking.”
