In AVIATION

Despite the ongoing economic slowdown, Indian airlines will fly a total of 23,403 flights per week in the upcoming winter schedule, more than what was flown during last year’s schedule. This year’s winter flight schedule, which will be effective from October 27 and will end on March 28, will witness a 1.2% on-year jump as compared to 2018. This comes at a time when India has witnessed the air travel growth rate tumble down to one-tenth of the number that was last year, owing to the Jet Airways collapse and low capacity expansion as other airlines moving to fill the gap created by Naresh Goyal founded airline. “Due to the sudden suspension of operations by Jet Airways, approximately 3,600 departures per week were reduced from scheduled domestic aviation,” aviation watchdog Directorate General of Civil Aviation said in a statement, The Indian Express reported.
