India is poised to be one of the largest aviation markets in the world in the years to come, the ACI said.

New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport has jumped six places to enter the league of the top 20 busiest airports in the world for 2017 in terms of traffic.

The GMR group-run airport jumped from the 22nd position in 2016 to 16th, solidifying its status as one of the fastest-growing airports in the world for passenger traffic, according to the Airports Council International.

ACI, a trade association of the world’s airports, said the ranking is based on the preliminary passenger traffic results for the most-travelled airports in 2017.
