To satisfy the escalating demand for the holiday season, IndiGo has announced additional flights from Bengaluru and Pune. In order to meet the increased demand for travel, the airline has altered its timetable and introduced new routes including Pune-Rajkot and Pune-Hosur. IndiGo has made the decision to add 20 Airbus A320 aircraft this year on lease in order to deal with grounded aircraft as a result of supply chain concerns.
The largest airline in India, IndiGo, has already begun to alter its domestic network and timetable in preparation for the forthcoming hectic travel season. In order to give travelers flying to visit their family and friends favorable schedules, the airline has announced new connectivity from Bengaluru and Pune.
For the Indian holiday season, IndiGo has announced a number of new flights from Bengaluru and Pune. Beginning on September 5th, the airline will begin operating extra flights on the Chennai-Pune route in response to the anticipated surge in customer demand. Other lines that started on September 5th include Bengaluru-Raipur, Mangaluru-Bengaluru, and Pune-Vadodara.
On September 6th, IndiGo began flying between Pune and Rajkot, and on October 2nd, it will begin doing the same between Pune and Hosur. The low-cost airline has also adjusted some of its flight schedules, including those between Pune and Mangaluru and Pune and Vishakapatnam, to enable passengers to travel at more convenient times. Vinay Malhotra, IndiGo’s head of global sales, said:
For Indian airlines, the final three months of the year are among of the busiest because thousands of people travel throughout the nation to see family and friends to celebrate important holidays like Navaratri and Diwali. As more people travel to well-known tourist destinations in India and overseas, demand continues into the following year.
The most recent announcement from IndiGo is a component of the company’s overall plan to capitalize on the forthcoming busy months. Due to Pratt & Whitney’s supply-chain problems, the airline has close to 40 aircraft grounded.
IndiGo has opted to wet lease 10 Airbus A320 aircraft in order to address this issue and has also entered a lease arrangement with BOC Aviation Limited for 10 more A320neo aircraft. These aircraft will be delivered in 2023 and will be powered by CFM LEAP-1A engines.
The airline is actively growing its network and has resumed operating flights from Delhi and Hyderabad to the Maldives. Additionally, it has recently begun or announced a number of overseas routes to the Middle East, Southeast and Central Asia, and even Africa.
Around its 17th anniversary, IndiGo also accomplished two milestones: doubling its fleet to 300 aircraft and hitting a daily maximum of 1,900 domestic flights.
