Indira Gandhi International Airport


New Delhi: A day after aviation regulator DGCA asked airlines to ground all Boeing 737 Max aircraft, a semblance of normalcy seem to be gradually returning at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) here on Thursday. A Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) official said the situation at the IGIA was manageable on Thursday as most of the cancellations were “planned”.

SpiceJet, which is the most affected airline from the suspension of the aircraft, pushed in additional services on Thursday from its fleet of Bombardier Q4 and Boeing 737 NG that allowed it to accommodate most passengers that faced cancellations as 14 flights using the Max remained cancelled for the second day.
