NEW DELHI: Roll-out of anti-COVID vaccine along with rise in new travel trends like 'Workation' and growth in regional routes are expected to accelerate existing passenger traffic to pre-pandemic levels within a few months, contended airline major IndiGo. Accordingly, the airline is gearing-up for the expected demand and plans to repeal the 'Leave Without Pay' norm across all departments from January 1, 2021.

In a conversation with IANS, IndiGo's Chief Commercial Officer William Boulter said the airline is optimistic about the arrival of a vaccine by early next year which will further propel the demand for air travel while opening avenues for international operations too.

"Additionally, we have witnessed travel demand for 'Workations', which have picked up as a promising domestic travel trend, with people moving out to newer cities and destinations to work remotely," Boulter said.

"We are bullish about the overall growth and demand for domestic travel and we look forward to achieving pre-COVID levels of traffic within the next few months."

According to Boulter, regional routes will take centre stage in aviation's growth especially in the near future. "We have witnessed moderate air travel demand and are optimistic that there will be more people travelling to meet their families after many months of being homebound," he said. (IANS)
