Domestic Air Traffic Rises 22.45% to 89.66 Lakh in November

New Delhi: Continuing the growth trajectory, domestic air traffic surged 22.45 per cent to 89.66 lakh passengers in November as low fares and introduction of new routes and services in the winter schedule of the local carriers helped them fly more passengers.
All Indian airlines together had transported a total of 73.22 lakh passengers in November 2015.
However, seat factor, which is a measure of how much of an airline's passenger carrying capacity is used or average percentage of seats filled in an aircraft, in November almost remained flat compared to October 2016 primarily due to the end of tourist season, according DGCA data released on Monday.

As against this, Naresh Goyal-owned Jet Airways together with its subsidiary JetLite clocked 17.3 per cent market share by carrying 16.54 lakh passenger in the reporting period.
