Indian aviation market has seen robust passenger growth in the past few months which has led to added competition among airlines, according to analysts. Domestic air passenger traffic surged nearly 16 per cent year-on-year in February, data from aviation regulator DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) showed. Indian carriers together flew a total of 86.55 lakh passengers in February 2017, it said.

Also, the trend of discounts and benefits being offered by carriers is likely to continue in the short term going forward, analysts further said. (ReadAirlines to see 23% passenger traffic growth, says Icra)

Riding on the passenger growth, various rival airlines have offered discounted schemes and added routes to their networks in the recent past. Among them have been AirAsia, Air India, Vistara, IndiGo and SpiceJet.

AirAsia India last week announced addition of two new destinations - Kolkata and Ranchi - to its network. The airline was also seen offering all-inclusive tickets starting from Rs 1,399 under a promotional scheme aimed at summer holidays.

Jet Airways signed a code-sharing agreement with Singapore-based airline Jetstar Asia for flights through Singapore.

Meanwhile, Air India expects a surge in demand on flights to the US and the UK following a ban imposed by the authorities on carrying laptops and tablets in cabin baggage on flights from some Muslim countries.
