Passenger traffic shoots up at Pune airport in December

Pune: The city airport’s passenger traffic grew by almost 1,500% in December compared to that in May last year, when the domestic flight operations resumed after the Covid-induced lockdown.

According to the figures provided by the Airports Authority of India (AAI), while the passenger traffic in May stood at 17,295, the same in December was 2,70,462.

The airport saw the highest passenger traffic last month since May.

Airport officials said that passenger traffic has grown by an average of 30,000 to 40,000 per month since July. “Growth in the number of passengers and flights is always good for civil aviation,” Pune airport director Kuldeep Singh told TOI.

Apart from the number of passengers, the number of flights has also grown since the domestic aviation services resumed.
