"Great sign. Our focus is to further improve connectivity across India, which is important for ‘Ease of Living’ and economic progress," PM Modi tweeted.
Earlier in the day, Scindia had tweeted, "On the road to full recovery, the Indian civil aviation has not only hit the 4-lakh daily passengers mark, but also achieved the highest ever numbers since pre Covid 19 era! Way to go".
The development comes as the Indian aviation sector achieved the milestone of 4 lakh domestic passengers on 9 October, inching closer to pre-Covid levels.
The country's civil aviation sector is on the recovery path after being hit by the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, and is projected to have 400 million air travellers in the coming years.
