• Indigo, SpiceJet stocks takeoff as regular international flights to resume after two years

    10 March

The Indian government has finally eliminated the COVID-19 limitations on all foreign flights, allowing airlines to operate at full capacity for the first time in two years. Flights will restart on March 27, just as they did before the outbreak."This is fantastic news for all passengers and the tourism industry, particularly as we approach the high summer season. The desire for foreign travel is increasing in India, with an increase in travel search inquiries for prominent overseas locations such as Australia, Sri Lanka, the United States, and the United Kingdom. This month, travel search requests from India for Australian cities such as Melbourne, Adelaide, and Sydney have increased by 15-20%. Travelers are more keen to book long-haul destinations, owing to the reopening of international borders and the loosening of laws throughout the world. "With the resumption of international commercial flights, the demand-supply balance would be restored, resulting in cheaper international airfares," said Aloke Bajpai, co-founder and global CEO of ixigo.
