IndiGo cancels 42 flights for today

Meanwhile, the Wadia Group-promoted GoAir, which operates 230-odd flights daily, has cancelled six flights on March 14 due to the grounding of three of its A320neo planes.

The IndiGo flight that was grounded on Monday was an Airbus 320 Neo aircraft with a Pratt and Whitney engine. GoAir cancelled 18 flights originating from over eight cities. About 40 percent of the domestic flyers is carried by IndiGo followed by GoAir which carries about 10 percent of the total population of domestic flyers.

This comes after the Indian civil aviation regulator Monday directed these airlines to immediately ground 11 aircrafts fitted with Pratt & Whitney's PW1100 engines. The airline has announced on its website on 13 March about its 47 flights being canceled across the domestic network. The flights cancelled were to Mumbai, Kolkata, Pune, Jaipur, Srinagar, Bhubaneshwar, Chennai, Delhi, Dehradun, Amritsar, Bengaluru and Hyderabad, among others.

The cancellations would definitely have an upward pressure on ticket prices because load factor of most airlines are high, he said, adding that the hike in fares could be "up to 10 per cent".

The aviation sector in the country may remain affected with IndiGo and GoAir likely to face more disruptions in the coming weeks. However, there is no reason to panic, because the airlines are constantly on the effort to minimize the trouble on part of the passengers.

In the national capital, Prabhu said the planes have been grounded only for passenger safety. They would like to restore the flights as soon as possible by making alternative arrangements. "We have to give paramount priority to safety".
