Delhi Airport sees gradual growth in passenger traffic numbers: Report

Delhi Airport has seen a gradual growth in passenger numbers in line with the recovery in air travel demand, as around 90,000 passengers travelled per day through the facility during the first 10 days of this month, according to a White Paper by GMR.

This is five times more than the mid-May passenger volumes when Delhi Airport handled around 18,000 travellers per day. The number by the end of June 2021 increased to about 62,000 passengers per day, the White Paper released on Friday said.

According to GMR, with the improvement in the Covid-19 situation and the high level of vaccinations being achieved, domestic traffic is expected to reach the pre-Covid level by the end of FY23. However, given the situation, international traffic could attain pre-Covid levels only by FY24.
