All of the routes, which all began on 22 September, are already served by other carriers, with IndiGo, India’s biggest domestic carrier present in all markets. This winter the LCC will be operating a total of 15 routes across India. So far in 2016, AirAsia India has carried 2.2% of all Indian domestic air travellers according to government figures.
