Passenger footfall drops at Jpr airport

Jaipur: The aviation sector was hit by the Covid pandamic for the last two years. Now that the situation has become normal across the country, the number of air travellers remains low at the Jaipur airport. The numbers are running low due to increased airfares and inflation.

The situation is worrying because in the last 3 months every time there is a fall in the passenger load. These days, on an average only 10,000 passengers are traveling from Jaipur airport every day. Whereas in winter, this figure was more than 15,000. In view of the reduction in passenger load, airlines like SpiceJet and Air Asia as well as IndiGo are now canceling flights from Jaipur airport. On an average 4 to 5 flights are getting canceled daily. Due to lack of passenger load, air connectivity of some cities from Jaipur airport has also been stopped. In winter, flights were available from Jaipur airport to 26 cities of the country, whereas now this figure has been reduced to 20.
