IndiGo suffered twice as many snags in 2017 but Jet fared worse: Here's how

New Delhi: India's biggest low-cost carrier, IndiGo, which had earlier reported only 340 technical snags to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) in 2017, recently revised the data to report 14,628 snags in its fleet during the year – an increase of over 4,200 per cent. While the number now reported by IndiGo is clearly the highest among Indian carriers, the airline might still not be the worst performer on this count
During 2017, IndiGo undertook 311,809 domestic flights and reported 14,628 snags. That translates into a rate of 4.69 per cent of flights developing snags.
By comparison, Air India undertook 113,263 flights (both domestic and international) and reported 4,563 snags – only a little better than IndiGo with a rate of 4.03 per cent.

Jet Airways, on the other hand, reported 9,689 glitches in the 156,700 flights that it operated (domestic and international) during 2017. It implies 6.18 per cent of the flights that the airline operated experienced snags. In other words, Jet Airways’ rate of snags in overall flights undertaken is 1.5 percentage points higher than IndiGo’s, even as the former flew only half as many flights as the latter during the year.
