To reconnect critical air corridors post the lockdown period, budget carrier IndiGo will resume flight operations from May 4.
IndiGo will start with a slightly curtailed capacity, which the airline will increase over subsequent months.
Besides, it plans to re-opening select international flights, depending on the existing travel guidelines.
“Complementing the government’s efforts against Covid-19, we will restart flight operations on vital corridors of air traffic from May 04, 2020,” IndiGo CEO Ronojoy Dutta said.
“We will begin operations for domestic only and then gradually ramp it up further, to commence operations on some international routes as well,” he said.
Furthermore, the airline said that for customers who are affected by the cancellations until May 3, the booking amount will be protected in the form of a credit shell under their PNR number, “which can be used to make bookings for the same customer(s) on our website or mobile app valid for 1 year from the date of issuance.”
