With Covid-19 cases in the country on a rise and people postponing travel, India’s largest airline IndiGo has decided it will not charge any fee for rescheduling of domestic and international flights booked for March 12-31. The airline also announced zero change fees on fresh bookings made between the said period.

The fee waiver would only apply to change of dates of flights but not in case of cancellation. The waiver would be applicable for both domestic and international flights. “We understand that some passengers are concerned about committing to travel, given the current coronavirus issue.

“Whilst the coronavirus is a very serious challenge for us all, we believe that measures such as this will help alleviate its effect on India’s travel,” Boulter added. A passenger would have to pay the fare difference in case of rescheduling the journey to a later date. Also, the customer would have to intimate the airline three days in advance for rescheduling of the journey, the release said.
