India’s domestic passenger traffic rises over 16% in August

New Delhi - India's domestic passenger traffic grew by 16% in August, a global airline association said.

"Indian airlines achieved a 36th consecutive month of double-digit traffic growth as demand rose 16%," the International Air Transport Association (IATA) said in its global passenger traffic data.

"Traffic continues to be stimulated by sizeable increases in the number of domestic routes served." 

India's domestic demand -- revenue passenger kilometres (RPK) -- was highest amongst major aviation markets like Australia, Brazil, China, Japan, Russia and the US.

The IATA data showed that India's domestic RPK -- which measures actual passenger traffic -- rose by 16 per cent in August compared to the corresponding month of the previous year.

India's domestic passenger traffic growth was followed by that of China at 10% and Japan at 9%.

In terms of capacity, India's domestic ASK -- which measures available passenger capacity -- edged higher by 15.1% in August. 

It was followed by China's ASK growth at 10.4% and Russian Federation's at 8.4%.

"Demand for domestic travel climbed 7.6% in August compared to August 2016, on pace with the 7.5% growth recorded in July," IATA said in its global passenger traffic data for August.

"Capacity rose 6.9% and load factor increased 0.6 percentage points to 84.5%. All markets reported demand increases with the exception of Australia," it added.

The international passenger demand for August climbed 7.2% compared to the year-ago period.

In addition, the August capacity increased by 6.3%, and load factor rose 0.7% to 84.5%.

"Following the strong summer traffic season in the Northern hemisphere, 2017 is on course to be another year of strong traffic growth. However, some important demand drivers are easing, particularly lower fares," said IATA's Director General and Chief Executive Officer Alexandre de Juniac.

"As we head towards the end of the year we still expect growth to continue, but potentially at a slower pace," he added.
