Delhi International Airport - Domestic passenger traffic remains weak in Dec-08


Airports Authority of India (AAI) reports total passenger numbers at Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport fell 9.2% year-on-year in Nov-08 to 1.9 million, as a result of high fares in the domestic market and a slowing economy. The overall decline in passenger traffic has been led by a steep decline in domestic traffic, which was down 18.5% year-on-year in Nov-08, continuing a run of very weak monthly results since Jul-08.
