The Chinese, African and the Latin American market will grow at an average annual rate of 5.4 per cent, 5.4 per cent and 4.8 per cent till 2040, he added.

India has nearly 23 million people travelling on trains every day and even if one per cent of them shifts towards aviation, the air traffic will double. India’s air cargo market has “massive untapped potential”.
