While airlines have been officially allowed to ply from the end of May, senior airline officials are not too confident of a positive turnaround. In fact, the former CEO of Indigo, Aditya Ghosh, has highlighted that airline companies will require relief on fixed costs, concessions on airport charges, navigation charges and taxes to be able to pull out of the crisis. Ghosh also pointed out that the fare caps proposed by the government would be a major pain point for the airline companies as they would lose out on pricing flexibility on routes where demand is robust. Most airlines have been shut for last 60 days and will be asked to adhere to strict protocols on social distancing. It is still not clear if the lucrative metro routes will be permitted because both Delhi and Mumbai are under red zones.
