The effects of the pandemic continue to weigh upon on the aviation sector and are not expected to fade away anytime soon. Though demand is picking up gradually, it is still far away pre COVID levels. Changes in business travel patterns, fall in tourism, etc are expected to have negative effects on the aviation sector. Also with the absence of any stimulus package by the government for the sector, the airline industry has had a rough time. However, Indigo being the sector leader and the most cost-efficient operator is expected to withstand the downturn.  

The Company's CEO, Mr. Ronojoy Dutta said, 'We are pleased that we are slowly but surely stair-stepping our way back to normal capacity. While we are very much focused on managing the crisis of the present, we are also reimagining the promise of the future. Once we are back at 100% capacity, we will have lower unit costs, a stronger product, a more efficient fleet and a robust network. We are impatient for the arrival of the future.'
