Data released on Thursday by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) showed that domestic air passenger traffic totalled 1.29 crore in November, up 11 per cent from 1.16 crore in October. Of these, private carriers flew 1.13 crore passengers while government-owned Air India carried 15.6 lakh passengers.

Important Points :- 

  • The 11.2% growth in traffic was led by SpiceJet, which carried 2 million passengers, a 43% y-o-y increase
  • After SpiceJet, IndiGo recorded the best passenger traffic growth at 21% to 6 million fliers

Data released on Thursday by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) showed that domestic air passenger traffic totalled 1.29 crore in November, up 11 per cent from 1.16 crore in October. Of these, private carriers flew 1.13 crore passengers while government-owned Air India carried 15.6 lakh passengers.

Domestic passenger traffic growth in November was led by SpiceJet, which carried two million passengers in the month, a jump of 43% year-on-year, while India’s largest airline IndiGo carried six million passengers, up 21%.

the passenger load factor of all major airlines — Air India, SpiceJet, GoAir, IndiGo, AirAsia and Vistara –declined in October as compared to September this year, as per DGCA data.

SpiceJet continued to lead in passenger load factor with 92.8% of its seats across flights sold, followed by GoAir (92.7%) and IndiGo (91.4%). In market share, IndiGo cornered 47.5%, followed by SpiceJet with 16.1% and Air India with 12.1%.

GoAir was the most punctual with 67.6% of its flights on time, followed by Vistara (67.4%) and Air Asia (66.7%).

 growth led by low fare should not be an ideal way to push demand. Anytime an airline operates a flight beyond 90 per cent occupancy, it is cannibalising profitability of its other flight, which is being sold at a little higher price.

Profitability is a hard balancing act. You don’t do it by selling cheap tickets and filling up planes, said a CEO of a low-cost carrier.

The airline wise seat load factor was Spice Jet at 92.8%, Go Air 92.7%, Indigo 91.4%, Air Heritage 88.2%, Air Asia 87.2%, Vistara 84.1%, Air India 83.0%, Trujet 78.4%, Star Air 73.0% and Air Deccan 27.7% in November 2019.
