Dear BAOA Members,
This is my first message of this year so I take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you and your family a safe and healthy 2022!
The early days of this year have not been easy at all! First, most of us have undergone the impact of Omicron and related challenges. Now we are on the brink of a possible World War 3 which can push the world into uncertain times.
Our ministers including Jyotiraditya Scindia and General V.K. Singh are spearheading the effort for getting our fellow Indians back home safely, from the war torn zone of Ukraine. Prime Minister Modi’s hands-on approach and his effective relationships built over the past years, may save the day for those stranded in the warzone. Our prayers for those who have lost their lives.. Irrespective of their faith, citizenships, political alliance... We hope the war ends sooner than later.
Our industry so far has seen good demand for pre-owned aircraft in recent months. The charter demand too has been good and improving. This will allow some companies to stay afloat after the challenging times of the pandemic. We are moving towards normalcy of returning to offices, meeting people, attending social gatherings, conferences etc.
WINGS INDIA 2022 in Hyderabad is expected to be a major event in aviation after a long time. I am sure most of us would like to be physically present and participate wholeheartedly in the various programmes around the event. The BizAv function organised by BAOA is on March 23 and we hope to see good participation from members of the industry & its ecosystem. Those interested in showcasing their services, can take this opportunity for sponsorship during this event which will have high visibility for relevant audience. You can contact our Managing Director for further details.
Wishing all of you safe and happy landings!
Thanks & Regards
