With new orders for a lockdown issued in India, there won’t be any commercial flights taking off or landing between March 25 and April 14, 2020, for the moment.
Indian carriers have started to keep their aircraft on the ground rather than have them fly. Our analysis shows this could be a trickle that could become a flood in the days ahead.
