For the week ended May 08, 2021, average number of departures declined sharply to 1,140 vis-a-vis 1,549 in the prior week.

The number of fliers per departure declined to 72 from 81 in the respective weeks (this implies a passenger load factor of ~50%).

Rising Covid-19 cases and increasing lockdown restrictions from various states will remain an overhang on air traffic.
