Air passenger traffic and aircraft movements is expected to reach the pre-COVID-19 level by early 2021, the annual pre-budget Economic Survey 2021 released on January 29 has said.

The survey said the Indian aviation market was among the biggest in the world and domestic airlines had begun to see a recovery in passenger traffic.

"Despite the severe challenges posed by COVID-19, the Indian aviation industry has persevered through the crisis and demonstrated long-term resilience and full commitment to serve," the survey, which was tabled in Parliament, said.

After being suspended in late March 2020, domestic flights resumed services in May and later in the year, travel corridors were created with some countries to resume operations.
