Air India flyer count rises only 4%, but passenger revenue jumps 20% in Q3


While Air India’s passenger count rose by only 4 per cent in the December 2018 quarter, its revenue from passengers increased by 20 per cent on the back of better aircraft utilisation, said a senior official of the company.

“Due to better and efficient utilisation of aircraft fleet, the passenger revenue increased from Rs 4,615 crore in third quarter of 2017-18 to Rs 5,538 crore in third quarter of 2018-19,” the official said.

The official added that the number of passengers has increased to 5.527 million during the quarter from 5.328 million in the year-ago period. “This shows that passengers have increased by around 4 per cent…but our ASKM (available seat kilometres) has increased at a much faster rate,” the official said.

ASKM indicates the passenger-carrying capacity of an aircraft. It is arrived at by multiplying the number of seats occupied by the distance travelled by the aircraft in kilometres during a particular period. Read More
