The birth of air travel was the fruition of the ageless dream of man to fly. The tremendous attachment with this pursuit saw the many developments in manned flight. At last when it became possible to fly, each one of us wanted to share this dream. The novelty factor of flying is imminent in most (except the acrophobic and the claustrophobic), and explains in part the tremendous acceptance of the concept of flying.
When flying became fast, cheap, safe and convenient enough, all those who needed and could afford flight, availed of the opportunity to fly. No other mode of transportation saw so fast an acceptance and so fast a growth. The rise of this whole sector of flight created a whole economy related to flying, and contributed to the growth of numerous ancillaries. Apart from the manufacturers of various core and accessory parts related to flight, various services developed catering to this category. Thus, both hardware as well as passenger insurance for air travel developed to meet the insurance needs of the air traveling world. Various forms of in-flight magazines and other literature related to both commercial and technical aspects of flying came up. In-flight entertainment systems catered to the entertainment needs of the passengers while flying. Various types of air-worthy equivalents of existing products had to be developed – from sweat towels to non-breakable containers, from suitable food and their packaging to intelligent toilets. Various forms of travel agents and consultants mushroomed to provide appropriate flight options.
