A total of 6.69 million people traveled on domestic flights during the period January-July 2022, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said in its monthly statement.
The rainy season is usually a lean period for the aviation sector in India.
IndiGo – India’s largest carrier – carried 57.11 lakh passengers in July, a 58.8% share of the domestic market, it said.
Vistara carried 10.13 lakh passengers and Air India carried 8.14 lakh passengers in July this year, according to data shared by DGCA.

Vistara and Go First held the second and third positions at these four airports in July with 89% and 84.1% punctuality respectively, the DGCA said.
