Domestic air passenger traffic in India grew by 8.4 per cent in Feb: IATA

New Delhi: Indian domestic passenger traffic saw a growth of 8.4 per cent in February as compared to the corresponding month in 2019, global airlines body IATA said on Thursday, indicating that the novel coronavirus had a minimal impact on the country's aviation sector.
"RPKs (revenue passenger kilometres) picked up in India (up by 8.4 per cent year-onyear) as local  arriers boosted air travel demand by lowering airfares in the typically weak travel season," the International Air Transport Association (IATA) said in a statement.
The IATA, which represents around 300 airlines accounting for 82 per cent of the global air traffic, measures passenger growth in terms of RPKs, which is calculated by multiplying the number of  assengers with the distance travelled by them.
