"The passenger load factor in the month of November 2018 is almost equal compared to previous month primarily due to the ongoing tourist season," the monthly statistical analysis statement said.
The data noted that GoAir led the industry with 87 per cent punctuality rate (on-time performance) at the four major airports of Bengaluru, New Delhi, Hyderabad and Mumbai. It was followed by Vistara (86.1) and IndiGo (79.2).

"The year-on-year growth of 19.21 per cent in November shows a continuous positive momentum in the domestic air market driven due to the ongoing tourist season," said Aloke Bajpai, CEO and Co-founder, ixigo.
"Fall in oil prices and holiday sales by airlines will ensure stable air fares and will continue to shoulder the passenger traffic growth in December."
