Many IndiGo flights have been delayed and aviation regulators are seeking clarification: Report
The operations of IndiGo airlines were affected nationwide, and some flights faced delays due to the lack of crew availability. Only 45% of IndiGo’s flights were able to fly on time on Saturday, as shown by Union Aviation Ministry data.
According to the Indian Pretrust, a significant number of crew members took sick leave and participated in Air India recruitment activities. “Phase 2 of Air India’s recruitment campaign took place on Saturday, with the majority of IndiGo’s cabin crew members taking sick leave attending,” an industry insider told the news agency.
The aviation regulator, the Director of Civil Aviation or DGCA, has asked the airlines to explain the significant delays.
