Adani Airports handle record 14.25 million passengers in the last year

Adani Airports have handled a record 14.25 million passengers in the last year, with air traffic jumping by 100% and touching pre-pandemic levels. All seven Adani airports saw an increase of 92% in domestic and 133% in international travellers. Additionally, there has been a rise in the number of domestic flights by 58% and international flights by 61%. Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) was the second busiest airport in the country, recording nearly 8.44 million passenger movements in January-February 2023.

The growth in traffic is evidence of Adani Airports’ efforts to promote passenger confidence through initiatives such as e-gates, barcode scanners, friendly and cooperative ground staff, Pranam Service, free WiFi, retail and F&B stores, and an automated parking system, among others, for a better customer experience and safety standards adopted across all airports.

This rise was driven by positive sentiments among air travellers and a strong surge due to the festive holiday season. The operator is well-aware of both the challenges and opportunities that come with high passenger volumes, particularly during holiday seasons, as these may vary daily or even hourly depending on the schedule of flights.

With more routes and airports opening up, the aviation sector in India is witnessing robust growth, increasing the country’s investment opportunities while simultaneously increasing job chances. This is nation-building at its best, something that the Adani Group believes in and has been steadfastly working towards it. The upward trend is expected to continue, and it is anticipated that the number of trips people will take in a year will increase. One of the factors driving this growth is the restart of tourism after the pandemic.
