The chart shows us that the indigo is occupying the market leader position in the industry and then follows by the jet airways Jet airways and Jetlite combination starts second in the share of markets. Air India has 19.5 percent of market share. Spice jet with 17.3 percent and Air coast and Air Asia with1.1 and 0.7 percent in the overall market share.

Conclusion:
Indigo is the leading LCC in the Indian market. It has captured more market then jet airways that occupy the 2nd market in LCC market share.
These LCCs have become a threat to the full service carriers all these LCCs together created a market that a full service carrier cannot enter into Indian domestic market if it enters cannot exist for long.
In my view that DGCA should frame more additional rules to their LCCs that there should a minimum to the routes and rates these LCCs should also have a standards in their pricing.
By following cost leader ship that is by maintaining total revenue (TR) more than total costs (TC) by covering its total fixed costs in short span of time and had got in the profit gaining airline amongst the LCC in the industry.
