ABSTRACT

The COVID 19 has brought down aviation industry to its knees. Till March 2020, before getting sense of distraction by this pandemic, Indian economy was eager to take off to reach further heights including the Aviation Sector. The growing middle class was the base reason for the prosperity in the Aviation Sector, but the pandemic has changed the whole scenario at least temporarily for next couple of years. However, even before the pandemic the history is showing that almost all Indian airlines companies are in losses. Jet Airways is almost grounded permanently whereas Kingfisher Airlines is now a history. Being one of the important sectors for the economy and even for the investors, an attempt is made to find out the reasons behind financial failure of selected Indian Aviation Companies by using Altaman's Z Score Model and Pilarski's P -Score Model and various problems faced by them. The secondary data is collected mainly by using Annual Reports of 4 leading Airlines Companies in India. Analysis is showing that various internal and external factors which are responsible for such pathetic financial position of these companies and a serious overhauling is required not only by those companies but also from the government side.
