IndiGo is witnessing a very high demand for domestic flights. This is because of the swift recovery that the economy is making and vaccinated people rising in numbers. According to a TOI report, IndiGo’s CEO, Ronojoy Dutta, said the airline is getting operating about 1400 daily flights currently out of which nearly 80 flights are international compared to the pre-COVID times when the airline operated about 1600 flights daily out of which 400 to 450 were international flights.
This is not just a good thing for IndiGo, but also for the entire aviation sector of the country. More domestic travel would ensure that the tourism sector picks up a little and trade can also take its usual course.
Dutta further told the publication that IndiGo has placed an order for more comfortable seats for its entire fleet.
Flight Tickets Price Might Increase Soon
While the rise in airline activity is a positive thing for the sector, there’s one thing that no one can ignore and it is the rising fuel cost. Airlines will have to purchase jet fuel for an even higher cost in the coming times which will directly result in their profit margin per flight. Thus, domestic as well as international flights might get expensive for travellers very soon. So, if you plan to travel, any time soon, book your tickets now.
