National, April 14, 2020: In its endeavour to reconnect critical air corridors post the lockdown, IndiGo, India’s leading airline, will resume flight operations from May 04, 2020. Initially starting with a slightly curtailed capacity, the airline will increase the operating capacity over the subsequent months, also re-opening selected international flights, depending on the existing international travel guidelines.
Ronojoy Dutta, Chief Executive Officer, IndiGo said, “Complementing the government’s efforts against Covid-19, we will restart flight operations on vital corridors of air traffic from May 04, 2020.

Our singular focus will be on ensuring the health of our customers and our employees. We are working closely with the government and the airports to take our aircraft and our airports to a significantly higher level of cleanliness while ensuring social distancing. The airline industry has always done a tremendous job in ensuring the safety of its customers and I am confident we will rise to this latest challenge as well”.
