How Often Do You Fly… India Is In Top 3 Of Air Travellers List

Well, that must have sounded a bit quirky. For a moment, does it reminisce you of the crowded Delhi metro or the crammed full Mumbai suburban railways, or your city where you’re travelling in any mode of transport but an aeroplane! The country, which has tens and thousands of trains and buses plying every day, follows the US and China on the list of air travellers globally.

The international air transport association (IATA) has compiled the flyers’ traffic accordingly to the nationality and recently released the data World Air Transport Statistics (WATS) for 2017. Over 400 crore passengers flew on scheduled services, combining both domestic and international ones. Americans accounted for 63.2 crore out of the total, followed by China with 55.5 crores.

India, third on the list, had 16.1 crore air-travellers. In other words, every hour nearly 18,000 flyers in either boarded, deboarded or flew in 2017. Overall, the top three flying nations, the US, China and India accounted for nearly 40 per cent.


According to 2016 Centre for Aviation date, India and Japan were tied at the 4th spot with nearly 14.1 crore flyers. The numbers for India has gone up, as a result of which Japan has lagged in this year’s list.


India witnesses a boom in the aviation industry and the numbers are well and truly in the favour of it. Maybe it’s a hint for all the youth out there to make inroads in the aviation industry.


Here’s a list of busiest airports in India:

  1. Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi
  2. Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, Mumbai
  3. Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru
  4. Chennai International Airport, Chennai
  5. Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport, Kolkata
  6. Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, Hyderabad
