Indian National passenger traffic Strikes 11.3% Increase in November: IATA

Reaching double digits for the first time since January 2019, national passenger traffic increase in India jumped to 11.3 percent in November compared to corresponding month 2018, stated worldwide airlines body IATA on Thursday.

“But, economic expansion (in India) from the third quarter has been the weakest in about six years amid a broad-based slowdown that’s impacting many sectors of the market. This may present a challenging environment for the business going forward,” said a statement issued by the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

IATA, which represents around 290 airlines containing 82 percent of international air traffic, steps passenger growth in revenue passenger kilometres (RPKs), that can be calculated by multiplying the amount of passengers into the distance traveled by these.
