Rajiv Gandhi International Airport daily footfalls jump to 30,000

Shamshabad: The daily passenger footfall at Hyderabad's Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) has crossed 30,000 in November, a 10-fold increase since the re-commencement of domestic operations from May 25 after Covid-19 induced lockdown. As the passenger footfall grows steadily and confidence in air travel is rising, the worst has passed and the operations are normalising, airport operator GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (GHIAL) said on Monday.

The number of domestic passengers in a single day touched 37,000 mark recently, the highest since the recommencement of domestic operations. The Air Traffic Movements (ATMs) also crossed 284 mark in a single day during November. The airport handled over three million domestic passengers from the day of recommencement till November 23.

"Crossing the three million passenger mark is a testimony to the growing passenger confidence in air travel. With the government allowing the airlines to operate 70 per cent of their pre-Covid capacity, GMR Hyderabad International Airport is all geared up for the safe travel of passengers with many contact-less initiatives at the airport," a spokesperson of the airport operator said.
