India’s domestic air-traffic grew by 26 per cent this July, compared to the same period last year, as per reports by IATA (International Air Transport Association). 

The average global demand stood at of 3.8 per cent during the mentioned period.

“July saw demand strengthen, after a softening in June. Demand was stimulated by lower fares which, in turn, were supported by lower oil prices. And near record high load factors demonstrate that people want to travel,” says director general and CEO of IATA, Alexandre de Juniac.

IndiGo with a market share of 39.8 per cent, retained its position of being the number one domestic carrier. Jet Airways (16.3 per cent) was second, followed by Air India (14.8 per cent).
