The US too has 90 crore passenger trips. Stating that investments in the aviation sector had increased ever since Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister as in the fiscal year 2014-15, 10 crore passengers travelled in planes, which increased to 16 crore in 2015-16 and recorded growth 16-17% in the last three years. In 2017, it grew 15.6% and India will continue to grow 15-16% as the government is doubling the total growth and expect to have 20 crore passengers in 2018.
