According to a travel portal’s traffic analysis report, India’s domestic carriers ferried 9.5 million fliers — the highest recorded in a month last year. The report by Ixigo.com also stated that traffic between October and December accounted for one-third the total fliers’ volumes in the year.

“On the whole, 2016 was a great year for the Indian aviation industry with most of the year seeing a high traffic of both domestic and international bookings. As per our projection the number of domestic fliers in the month were about 9.5 million, 23% higher than the same period last year,” said Aloke Bajpai, chief executive officer and co-founder, Ixigo.

He added that holidays and bulk discounts were the primary baits.

“The surge in demand could be owing to many factors such as winter vacations coupled with year end flight sales launched by most airlines such as Spicejet, Jet Airways, Indigo and AirAsia,” he said adding that some travel portals also introduced discounted deals. Read more…
