Domestic air passenger traffic rose 5.4 percent month-on-month in September this year, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said on October 18.

The total passenger load in September stood at 70.66 lakh compared to 67.01 lakh in August, 50.07 lakh in July and 31.13 lakh in June.

The passenger traffic in September 2021 was 79 percent higher when compared to the same month in the past year, the aviation sector regulator said. In September last year, the number of passengers carried by domestic airlines stood at 39.43 lakhs.

Flight restrictions have been relatively eased as compared to September last year when complete lockdowns were imposed by several states to curb the pace of COVID-19 transmission.

Domestic airlines were allowed to operate at 60 percent capacity utilization in September 2020 compared to the 85 percent capacity utilization allowed in September 2021.

The passenger load factor of major scheduled commercial airlines fell slightly in September as compared to the previous month. IndiGo’s PLF fell to 73.6 percent in September from 74.0 percent in August.

Similarly, SpiceJet’s PLF fell to 78.8 percent in September from 79.6 percent in August and Air India’s PLF fell to 63.7 percent in September from 68.4 percent.

However, Vistara’s PLF rose to 72.4 percent from 71.3 percent in the previous month and GoFirst’s PLF rose to 74.1 percent in September from 67.6 percent in August.
