'Air India sees rise, registers growth in passenger revenue'
New Delhi: Air India performance has improved for the first time in several years with the national carrier registering growth in passenger revenue and load factor, Minister of State for Civil Aviation K C Venugopal said on Tuesday.

In a written reply to a question on Air India's performance in the Rajya Sabha, the Minister informed that the airline's operating performance during April-September quarter of this year has improved in comparison to the corresponding period in 2011.

"The passenger revenue has gone up by Rs 328.88 crore, an improvement of 6.1 percent, yield has improved from Rs 3.43 per kilometres to Rs 4.31 per kilometres and the load factor has improved from 69.3 percent to 70.9 percent," Venugopal said.

In reply to a separate question, the Minister informed the House that an incident similar to the 2010 Air India Express plane crash was averted at Mangalore airport recently.

He said government has classified the occurrence as serious incident and constituted a Committee of Inquiry to carry out an investigation into the matter.

"An undershoot landing incident to Boeing 737-800 aircraft VT-AXE of Air India Charters Limited occurred on August 14, 2012 at Mangalore airport while operating flight IX-814 on Dubai-Mangalore sector. The flight number, air route and runway used for landing were same as the Mangalore crash which occurred in 2010," he said.
