This caused inconvenience to many passengers in boarding these flights. For the past several days, Indigo Airlines planes are flying late from the scheduled time across the country.

According to sources, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has taken strong cognizance against IndiGo in the matter and has sought an explanation behind the huge flight delay across the country.

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.
