Domestic air passenger traffic is expected to grow by about 42% sequentially during June, compared to the previous month, due to a decline in fresh numbers of Covid-19 infections across the country, rating agency Icra said in a statement on Tuesday.

According to the agency, domestic passenger traffic is estimated at about 29-30 lakh, implying a sequential growth of about 41-42% during June, compared to about 19.8 lakh in May 2021.
