The government owned Airports Authority of India (AAI) operates 126 airports and civil enclaves out of a total of 449 airports and airstrips located throughout India. Approx. 100 airports/aerodromes handle regular commercial passenger flights. The cities of Bengaluru, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kochi and Mumbai are served by privately (or joint-venture) operated airports. Airports in India handled over 341 million passengers in 2018. India is the third largest domestic civil aviation market in the world behind the USA and China.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had an significant impact on the civil aviation sector, nevertheless the domestic segment had seen a major rebound from the second half of '20 onwards. The number of passengers carried on domestic flights in India in Sep '20 was approx. a third of the passenger volumes in the corresponding month of 2019. The number of passengers carried during the pandemic was on a recovery path as the government had granted permission for a larger number of flights to operate (presently capped at 50 % of comparable pre-COVID capacity). As an example, 245 000 passengers were carried on 2 281 flights on 25 Mar which corresponded to ca 65 % of pre-pandemic domestic air passenger volumes in Mar 2019. The second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic (see COVID-19 report) which began in India in March '21 has had an adverse effect on domestic air services. Passenger volumes plummeted to 81 000 on 5 May served by 1 125 flights.
