The Northern Summer 2022 schedule came into effect on March 27, 2022. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) approved a schedule that has 25,309 weekly departures. This roughly translates to approximately 3,615 daily departures. This also includes the 355 weekly departures of TruJet, which has been facing turbulent times.
However, the regulator did not upload the schedule of TruJet, as the airline has once again suspended operations. This takes the daily departures to 3,565.
On March 27, 2022, airlines in India saw 2,742 departures, which is 76.91 percent of the approved schedule. While the flights went up over the previous day, the compliance went down from 81 percent the previous day, when 3,135 daily flights were approved as part of the Winter Schedule.
IndiGo, the largest carrier in the country by fleet and market share, proposes to fly to 74 destinations. The airline launched flights to Kadapa in Andhra Pradesh and Pantnagar in Uttarakhand as the 72nd and 73rd destinations. The airline has approvals to fly to two more destinations -- Dharamshala and Bhuj, taking the approved station count to 75.
