Pak airspace closure may push IndiGo to take Doha stop for debut Delhi-Istanbul flight


As Pakistan airspace continues to remain closed since February 27 in the wake of the IAF air strike in Balakot, IndiGo’s Delhi-Istanbul plane may have to take a stop at Doha on its inaugural flight on March 20.

“The flights on Delhi-Istanbul-Delhi route will be through Doha in Qatar if Pakistan does not open its airspace by March 20,” said a senior airline official.

On January 25, IndiGo, India’s largest carrier in terms of domestic market share, announced it would operate daily non-stop planes between Delhi and Istanbul from March 20, with A321 aircraft.

IndiGo would be the first Indian airline to fly to Turkey, and Istanbul would be the 16th international destination for the budget carrier. Read More
