Liberalization of Air Services in South Asia Prospects and Challenges

The key objective of the study was to identify the factors which inhibit air connectivity in South Asia and to suggest policy measures that could lead to greater air connectivity. This exercise began by examining the extent of restrictiveness of the regulatory apparatus in effect in South Asia – that is, the available information on BASAs in the region and looked at the current degree of connectivity in the region by mapping out the existing flight route operations in South Asia identifying the poorly serviced routes.
