• Vistara doubles market share, Jet sees steep fall

    Vistara has doubled its market share to 2.8 per cent in June over the corresponding month last year. Jet Airways saw the sharpest fall among all airlines during this period.

    Domestic air traffic rose 20.81 per cent in June on the back of low fares and peak season demand.

    Carriers flew 7.9 million passengers against 6.6 million passengers in June 2015. According to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) data, domestic airlines flew 47.5 million passengers between January and June this year, registering a year-on-year (y-o-y) growth of 22.52 per cent.

    Vistara’s market share grew from 1.3 per cent in June 2015 to 2.8 per cent as it inducted aircraft and expanded its network.

    The market share of Jet Airways and JetLite (combined) slipped two percentage points to 19.1 per cent as it did not add aircraft and most of its capacity enhancement was through better aircraft utilisation. Daniel Sprong Womens Jersey
