New Milestone For Indian Airports: Over 300 Mn Passengers Handled In FY18


In a new milestone for Indian aviation, the country’s airports in 2017-18 have handled over 300 million throughput passengers for the first time, according to data released by the Airport Authority of India (AAI). These include domestic, international as well as passengers in general aviation.

Each passenger handled on domestic flights is counted twice — once at the airport for departure and once again at the landing airport. International passengers, of course, are counted just once.

Passenger throughput grew over 16.5 per cent in 2017-18 to hit over 308 million over the previous financial year (265 million passengers). While domestic passengers handled by airports went up by 18.3 per cent, international grew by 10.4 per cent. Read More…
