Busiest Indian airports 2018 by number of passengers

India's leading airports in FY 2018, based on number of passengers handled (in millions)

by Statista Research Department, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Busiest Indian airports 2018 by number of passengers In the financial year of 2018, Indira Gandhi international airport, serving the national capital region of Delhi, handled almost 66 million passengers. The aviation industry in the country has grown drastically over the last decade, with the domestic air travel market witnessing the fastest growth worldwide. Low cost carriers such as Indigo and Jet Airways were the prominent institutions in the domestic sector, but with the suspension of operations by the latter in early 2019, the runway seems set for IndiGo to take off in the market.
The crash

Jet Airways, formerly one of the biggest private airline companies, began facing issues late in the year 2018. Increased pressure from owners and increasing consumer complaints in 2019 did not make the situation better, and after a debt of over a billion U.S. dollars, the company decided to suspend operations.

More runways, less stress

Indira Gandhi international airport was the busiest airport in the south Asian country, with over 17 million passengers handled in 2018. The pressure on airport authorities from arrivals and departures is likely to reduce with the promise of up to 30 new airports by the newly re-elected prime minister Narendra Modi. The addition to the already operating 100 airports could be a possible blessing in disguise for the authorities as well as the passengers, who can then have the freedom of landing directly or close to the destination of their choice
