New Delhi/NITN: Indian airline IndiGo has reduced its domestic schedule to match market demand over the next few weeks.
On Mar 22, in line with the Janata Curfew announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the airline will be operating approximately 60% of its normal domestic schedule, in order to accommodate those with urgent travel requirements on that day.
The airline said, "Going forward, responding to the various travel restrictions imposed worldwide, most of our international flights are suspended and additionally, given the reduction in domestic demand, we are trimming our domestic India operations by approximately 25% for now."
In this fluid situation, IndiGo will continually review operations to match capacity to demand.
