New Delhi: Air traffic in India has witnessed a growth of 16.5 percent during the period 2004-05 to 2010-11.

Civil Aviation minister Ajit Singh told the Lok Sabha Wednesday that the domestic traffic had witnessed a cumulative annual growth rate of 18.5 percent and while it was 14 percent for international traffic during this period.

Reply to a question, the Minister said that the total flights per week on domestic network had increased from 8724 in year 2006 to 12107 in year 2011.

The number of airports operating Scheduled Air Services also increased from 50 in year 2000 to 82 in 2011, he added.
