IndiGo had the best real -time performance (OTP) of 95.4 percent at four metro airports in February, while Go First ranked number two with 94.1 percent in the same month, according to data released by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) aviation regulator .
Bengaluru, Delhi, Hyderabad and Mumbai are the four airports where Indigo has the best OTP, data released on Monday said.
In January, the situation was reversed as Go First had recorded the best OTP of 94.5 per cent at four airports while IndiGo was at number two with 93.9 per cent OTP.
“We are happy with OTPs consistently despite the most challenging situations. We have been able to increase our OTPs to 95.4 per cent in February 2022 from an annual monthly average of 93.5 per cent in 2021,” an IndiGo spokesperson said.
The spokesperson added that IndiGo will continue to deliver on its promise of an “affordable, timely, safe and hassle -free travel experience” for its customers.
In February, Vistara, SpiceJet, Air India, AirAsia India and Alliance Air had OTPs of 90.9 per cent, 90.9 per cent, 89.8 per cent, 88.5 per cent and 88.5 per cent respectively.
About 76.96 lakh of domestic passengers traveled by air in February, about 20 per cent more than the 64.08 lakh who flew in January, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation said on Monday.
The February figure is a sign that the domestic aviation market is recovering after a 43 percent decline observed in January due to the Omicron coronavirus variant.
In December last year, 1.12 crore domestic passengers had traveled by air.
