As Indian carriers carried 1.20 crore passengers on local routes in May, recording a roughly five-fold increase in volume year over year, according to DGCA data released on Wednesday, domestic air passenger traffic saw a strong revival in demand.
According to data from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), there were just 21 lakh domestic aviation passengers in May 2021.
IndiGo, the market leader, transported about 70 lakh of the 1.20 crore passengers flown by domestic carriers in May 2022, accounting for 57.9% of the market share.
Go First, a Mumbai-based airline, transported 12.76 lakh passengers, or 10.8% of all domestic traffic.
According to the monthly data, low-cost carrier SpiceJet had the greatest load factor during the reporting month at 89.1%, followed by Go First at 86.5 %.
The passenger load factor, also known as the seat factor or average percentage of seats filled in an aircraft, is a measure of how much of an airline's passenger carrying capacity is used.
AirAsia India achieved the highest percentage of on-time flights (90.8%) across four important airports, according to On-Time Performance (OTP).
According to the DGCA, Vistara had the second-best OTP in the examined month, at 87.5%.
