New Delhi/IBNS: Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, IndiGo has been authorised to operate 97 Kerala reparation flights to the Middle East. 

Adhering all the precautionary measures, the flights will be operated between Kerala and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Doha, Kuwait and Muscat.

IndiGo has been granted nearly half of the total 180 repatriation flights allotted to private airlines.

Ronojoy Dutta, Chief Executive Officer, IndiGo said, “We had expressed eagerness to support Indian government’s repatriation efforts from the Middle-East. We are grateful for the approval to operate flights to four countries to bring back our fellow citizens, who are either stranded due to suspension of operations or have registered to fly back owing to the economic landscape."

"These special flights offer an opportunity to leverage our network strength in the Middle-East to support the nation at this crucial time. IndiGo will continue to contribute and adapt its business to the needs of the hour," he said.

The 97 repatriation flights will include 36 flights from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, 28 from Doha, 23 from Kuwait and 10 from Muscat, to Kerala.
