Airways in India play a very important role because of its unmatched speed, long-distance operation and time-saving lineaments. Air transportation is important as it helps reach remotest areas, such as forests, deserts, mountains, etc. easily and in lesser time span. It also helps in difficult situations such as famines, earthquakes, floods, epidemics, etc. The first air mail service began in India in 1911. In 1920, some aerodromes were built in the country. In 1928, flying clubs were constructed in some cities.
Once the airlines began in India, the Government of India set up two different corporations in 1953:
(i) Air India International to cater to international air routes.
(ii) Indian Airlines for domestic air transport.
Air travel in India has undergone a revolutionary change ever since private airlines came into the picture.
Now the proliferation of private airlines has considerably brought down fares that are now within the reach of common people.
