New Delhi, January 04, 2024.

Domestic airlines inducted a total of 133 planes in 2023, which is 51 per cent higher on an annual basis, as they continued to expand their networks to meet rising passenger demand.

Out of the total, 21 aircraft were taken by the carriers on wet lease.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said that in line with the anticipated increase in aircraft inductions in 2024, it is “suitably enhancing its regulatory capacity to further speed up the regulatory approvals related to the induction of aircraft”.
