IndiGo operates relief flights at own cost in the service of the nation

In its continuous endeavour to provide support to the nation in the current
scenario, IndiGo has been authorised to operate over 30 relief flights in the country. These flights have
been successful in carrying and supplying the medical equipment and other requisite resources across
the country, while adhering to all the precautionary measures. The airline has been allowed by the
government to carry cargo in their planes, to fly food, medicine and medical equipment in the country’s
battle against the pandemic. These flights are being operated by the company at its own cost
Mr. Ronojoy Dutta, Chief Executive Officer, IndiGo said, “We are humbled and gratified that despite the
lockdown, we have so far been authorized to operate at our own cost over thirty emergency relief flights
carrying medical equipment and supplies from one part of the country to another. We know how critical
it is for health workers in every corner of the country to get immediate access to medical supplies, and
we are grateful to be allowed to play a role, however modest, in this supply chain. Our 27,000 employees
are standing just a little bit taller, knowing that we are able to mobilize our resources to make a small
contribution to the health and well-being of our nation. The employees of IndiGo would also like to salute
our colleagues over at Air India, for the heroic work they have been doing in evacuating Indians and
other nationals stranded in foreign countries. It makes us all proud to see aviation professionals stepping
forward to respond to the critical humanitarian needs of the hour.”
