There has been a strong recovery in average daily fliers. The number of weekly average daily fliers have increased by at least 50,000. The average daily fliers stood at 2.49 lakh in the week ended February 12, 2022 compared with 1.96 lakh in the week ended February 5.

Earlier this year, the average number of daily fliers had dropped below 3 lakh due to the rise in Omicron varient of Covid-19. However, it looks like there is some recovery in air travel.

For the week ended February 12, the average number of daily departures improved to 1,870 from 1,663 in the previous week. The number of fliers per departure also increased to 133 from 118, according to a report from ICICI Securities.

The Covid-19 had impacted Indian aviation quite badly, and the onset of Omicron had only exacerbated the situation. Before Omicron hit, the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA), had said the industry is returning to pre-Covid levels and airlines have reached 90 per cent of the pre-pandemic peak traffic in November 2021.  But as passenger traffic starts picking up, 2022 could be a better year, according to analysts
