According to a directive issued by the Indian Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) on September 18, 2021, Indian domestic airlines are eligible to carry up to 85 percent of passenger load capacity.

“After reviewing the existing situation of Scheduled Domestic Operations in relation to passenger demand for air travel […] 72.5 percent capacity may be construed as 85 percent capacity,” according to the MoCA order.

The directive was issued after MoCA reported a 34% rise in domestic passenger traffic in August 2021 against July 2021.

While SpiceJet and GoAir are reportedly opposed to the relaxed restrictions due to operational constraints caused by capital issues, IndiGo, according to the Economic Times, is expecting for more relaxations in carriage capacity and flight frequencies.

The increase in load carriage capacity suggests that the Indian aviation industry is gradually reviving. It has the potential to be a windfall for airlines in terms of regaining ground lost due to COVID-19-related domestic travel limitations.

International scheduled flights have been banned in India till the end of September 2021.
