Hyderabad: The transfer traffic at Hyderabad International Airport has increased from 9% in 2015 to 26% in 2022, according to the airport authority. It also said that due to the geographical location, it has helped airlines create a hub and spoke model effectively at the Hyderabad airport.

Hyderabad International Airport is the only airport in the country where all 10 domestic airlines fly. Hyderabad has emerged as the 4th busiest airport in India from its earlier position of 6th busiest airport.

As a preferred and largest transit hub, it offers convenient proximity for passengers originating from nearby cities. Airlines can connect to any part of India within a flying time of approximately two hours.

Internationally, airlines can connect to south Asia, southeast Asia, and the Middle East within a flying time of four hours. Since domestic destinations can be reached within two hours of flying time, domestic traffic from India and transfer traffic from south Asia, southeast Asia, and the Middle East regions can support the traffic requirement for long-haul flights to the USA, Europe, and Australia.

Hyderabad has the right mix of passenger traffic. Along with the MNCs and corporate, Hyderabad has strong VFR (Visiting Friends and Relatives), tourists, MSME (Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises) and student traffic. In the last two years, these segments have helped the airport recover faster than any other Metro airport in India.

To further strengthen and facilitate the hub and spoke operations for airlines, Hyderabad International Airport is increasing its capacity from current 12 million passengers/annum to 34 million passengers/annum in an integrated domestic and international terminal under a single roof.

The integrated terminal at Hyderabad International Airport is a unique facility in the entire south and central India and stands out from other international airports in the region which has multiple terminals.
