Kolkata, Jan 29 : After carefully assessing the current Coronavirus situation in China, IndiGo is taking some safety measures for its customers, crew and staff. "Due to China travel restrictions, we have seen a high number of cancellations from China on our Delhi-Chengdu route and vicea-versa," an IndiGo statement here on Wednesday said.
"Therefore, we are suspending our flights between Delhi and Chengdu from February 1, until February 20. We are also suspending our Bengaluru- Hong Kong flight effective February 1, it said "These are purely temporary and precautionary measures. We understand that these measures will cause inconvenience to our customers and we will be refunding the full amount to the impacted passengers," the statement said.
"We are in close touch with the relevant Government authorities and we thank them and our partners in China for all the help and support that they have extended so far," it said. "For now, we will continue to operate our Kolkata – Guangzhou flight, which we are monitoring on a daily basis. And for our operating crew, we are ensuring that they return to India on the inbound flights without any layover in China," the statement added. (UNI)
