Jet Airways along with its subsidiary JetLite continued to lead the pack with a market share of 26.3% in August followed by Kingfisher (18.8%) and IndiGo (18.7%). State-owned Air India had a market share of 17.4% followed by SpiceJet with 13.4% and GoAir 5.3%.

The month of August witnessed a significant decrease in seat factor as compared to previous months primarily due to peak season end and monsoon.
