The number of air passengers in India is increasing continuously. On 30 April, this number recorded a new record. On this day, 4,56,082 air passengers took off across the country. This is a record for the number of domestic air passengers who did not fly in a single day.
In a tweet about this, Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia has called it a ‘record’. According to the ministry, on Sunday, 4.56 passengers took off from 2,978 flights across the country. While there was a total movement of 5,947 flights across the country.
Crossed the pre-covid level
The average air passenger in the country has now crossed the pre-Covid level. This shows the increasing air traffic in the country. At the same time, it also shows the improvement in the aviation sector after Corona. Before Corona, the average number of air passengers flying daily in the country was 3,98,579.
During the Corona period, there was a ban on air services across the country for almost a year. However, under the Vande Bharat Mission, the government continued the work of bringing Indians stranded abroad.
Record of 3054 domestic flights
India has not made a record only in terms of the number of air passengers. Rather, a new record has also been set regarding the number of domestic flights. On April 27 this year, 3,054 domestic flights took off across the country, which is the highest number of domestic flights in a single day.
Jyotiraditya Scindia has expressed happiness over the record number of air passengers and flights in the country. It has been described as a sign of increasing development and prosperity in the country.
Indian civil aviation sector is setting new records everyday – Post-Covid, skyrocketing domestic air passenger numbers are a sign of India’s rising growth and prosperity.
