Companies can make many changes to protect passengers when the airline starts after the lockdown imposed due to Corona virus in India. The CEO of the airline IndiGo has said that food service will not be provided during the flight for some time and only 50 percent of the seats in the aircraft will be filled. Apart from this, there will be special emphasis on cleanliness.
Airlines CEO Ronojoy Dutta said on Friday, “In situations like these, companies do not manage growth or profit but manage cash flow. This means that our only focus is on cash flow. We are studying all our fixed costs and are looking for ways to reduce them. ”
What did the CEO say?
Dutta said that after the lockdown, Indigo’s plan would be to first start services and gradually increase capacity. “We always take more care of safety and now we have to take care of health as well” he said in an email to employees on Friday. “Keeping this in mind, we are considering changing many of our operational processes. New procedures are yet to be decided”.
He said, “We will clean our planes many times and will ensure more cleanliness than before, we will stop serving food in the aircraft for some time and we will fill our coaches only by 50 percent.” We will bring new procedures soon.
