Super Sunday for Indian aviation

On Sunday, November 7, the country saw 378,992 passengers fly. This came on the back of 2,701 departures that day.

The passenger numbers and flight deployment were the highest since the resumption of flights following the Covid-19 outbreak and came as the long tail of the second wave tapered and the vaccination drive covered more people across the country.

The higher number of flyers meant that more seats were occupied on flights than before, with the load factor for SpiceJet and Air India crossing 90 percent on November 7.

The recovery now stands at 84.33 percent for flights when mapped against the approved winter schedule and 89.14 percent on passenger count when mapped against the pre-Covid numbers.

The good part about these numbers is that they are not a one-off wonder. There were 2.09 million domestic air passengers in the first seven days of November. That was the highest since the first seven days of March this year, when 1.81 million passengers took to the air.
