Several IndiGo flights across the country were delayed due to non-availability of crew members. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) took cognizance of the issue and ordered the airline to issue a clarification as to the delays, officials said.
According to news agency ANI, DGCA officials said the regulatory body had taken strong cognizance against IndiGo and sought a clarification behind the massive delays countrywide.
There has been a demand for airline tickets as Covid-19 cases recorded a major dip over the past month or so. IndiGo on Friday (July 1) started operating additional flights on Delhi-Leh, Delhi-Srinagar and Lucknow-Pantnagar routes to cater to increased demand for travel to Ladakh, Uttarakhand and Kashmir.
“We are pleased to strengthen our network by adding frequencies on Delhi-Leh, Delhi-Srinagar and Lucknow-Pantnagar routes, catering to increased demand for travel to Ladakh, Uttarakhand and Kashmir,” said Sanjay Kumar, chief strategy and revenue officer, IndiGo.
