6th September 2023, Mumbai: IndiGo, India’s largest airline, has announced a one-time waiver for passengers traveling to or from Delhi between September 8 and 11, 2023, coinciding with the G20 Summit scheduled to be held in the national capital on September 9 and 10.
G20 Summit – Indigo’s Plans
As Delhi prepares for the G20 Summit, which will involve various traffic restrictions and heightened security measures, IndiGo aims to facilitate the travel plans of its passengers during this period. The waiver includes options for rescheduling or canceling flights with refunds.
Indigo’s press release
The country’s flagship airline, headquartered in Gurugram, stated in a press release: “Due to the G20 Summit 2023 taking place in New Delhi, IndiGo is offering a one-time waiver to passengers traveling to and from Delhi between September 8 to 11, 2023. Customers are being offered the option of rescheduling or cancelling their flights with refunds. Passengers have been notified about flight cancellations and to schedule changes in advance. In case of any further queries, passengers are requested to contact our customer care numbers at 0124 6173838 or 0124 4973838.”
During the G20 Summit, Delhi will witness extensive security measures
This announcement from IndiGo follows a similar move by Air India, owned by the Tata Group, which also provided a one-time waiver to passengers scheduled to fly to or from Delhi between September 7 and 11. During the G20 Summit, Delhi will witness extensive security measures and traffic restrictions. However, there will be no formal “lockdown” in the city. To reach the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport or any part of the capital, citizens can utilize the Metro, which will operate normally during the two-day summit. The only exception is the Supreme Court station, located near the summit venue, which will be inaccessible to commuters.
For those traveling in private vehicles, it is advised to follow the routes suggested by the Delhi Traffic Police to navigate the city efficiently during the G20 Summit.
