The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced industry performance statistics for 2015 showing that, among the world’s largest domestic markets, India had the fastest domestic passenger growth in 2015. 
With annual growth of 18.8 percent (in a market of 80 million domestic passengers), India’s performance surpassed that of Russia (11.9 percent growth, in a market of 47 million domestic passengers), China (9.7 percent growth, in a market of 394 million domestic passengers) and the United States (5.4 percent growth, in a market of 708 million domestic passengers).
 This information was included in the recently released 60th Edition of the World Air Transport Statistics (WATS), the yearbook of the airline industry’s performance.
“Last year airlines safely carried 3.6 billion passengers—the equivalent of 48 percent of the Earth’s population—and transported 52.2 million tonnes of cargo worth around US $ 6 trillion. In doing so, we supported some US $ 2.7 trillion in economic activity and 63 million jobs,” said IATA Director General and CEO Tony Tyler.
