The Tourism Industry is the second largest and one of the fastest growing industries and the hospitality industry is an integral component of tourism . No travel arrangement can be complete without hotel arrangements. As the tourism and hospitality industries are inter linked , knowledge of both these fields would enhance your career prospects whether you intend looking for employment opportunities or starting your own business. 

Even as per the statistics of WTTC (WORLD TRAVEL & TOURISM COUNCIL), the tourism industry is set to grow at a rate of 8.4 % per annum thus generating over 80 lakh job opportunities. The WTTC has also predicted that by the year 2010 , more than one out of 15 jobs will be in the tourism sector. 

Tourism is made up of various components including Travel, Accommodation, Sightseeing, etc. and hence many related sectors would flourish with the increase in Tourism. More international airports will be set up and this would also result in employment opportunities in the Airline Industry. The Airline Industry itself has two main areas of employment i.e. Passenger and Cargo handling.



The liberalization of Indian Economy in the 1990s has given impetus to growth of air traffic and the open sky policy has enabled airlines to bring in freighters without any restrictions. The AIRPORT AUTHORITY OF INDIA (AAI) have estimated that the domestic and international air passenger traffic would grow by 12.5% and 7 % respectively in the coming years and the Air Cargo would also grow by about 10%. Exports too have quadrupled and with bigger volumes have created employment opportunities in both the Export as well as the Freight Forwarding Industries.

With the advent of globalization and internet , many MNCs have come in and the importance of doing business in widely spoken foreign languages would add a cutting edge in the Airline, Tourism , Export and Hospitality Industries and accessing Internet for large volumes of information and corresponding thru' e-mail is a must for growing markets.
