As domestic aviation looks to gradually recover from the Covid impact with around 57 per cent likely revenue growth in FY22 because of likely higher passenger traffic, the domestic sector’s net losses may decline to Rs 14,600 crore, according to a PTI report citing rating agency ICRA. This is down from an estimated net loss of Rs 21,000 crore this fiscal. However, the agency had maintained its ‘negative’ credit outlook for the country’s aviation sector. ICRA sees debt levels to stay high in 2020-21 and 2021-22 while the sector may need an investment of Rs 35,000 crore – 37,000 crore during 2020-21 and 2022-23.
