Mia Handles Record No. Of Passengers In Nov, Infra News, ET Infra


MANGALURU: Mangaluru International Airport (MIA) handled a record 1,78,314 passengers in November, the highest in the current financial year. This includes 1,32,762 domestic and 45,552 international passengers. The total number of passengers handled in November represents a 10.3% growth than the passengers handled in October 2023. With this, the airport has handled 12,86,207 passengers in the first eight months of the current fiscal year, against 11,95,499 passengers in the corresponding period last year.

This growth also coincides with the start of the winter schedule, that got underway on October 29. Additional flights on the Mangaluru-Bengaluru, Mangaluru-Chennai, and Mangaluru-Mumbai sectors have aided this rising trend in passenger growth. The steady stream of chartered flights (general aviation) that the airport handles, too, has played its part in aiding passenger growth, the airport spokesperson said.

This upward trend in passenger movement also increased air traffic movements (ATMs) at the airport in November, which rose to 1,298, the highest in the current fiscal, as against 1,222 ATMs in October 2023. The passenger growth from April to November 2023 has been achieved despite a dip in ATMs vis-à-vis the same period in the last fiscal year, where the airport handled 9,797 movements against 9,273 ATMs inthis year.
