Passengers travelling by the airlines could expect crowded counters and chaos at the airports across the nation as flight services are likely to be hit. Reports inform that several passengers in metro cities experienced long queues while boarding. According to a report by Indian Express, an IndiGo official in Chennai informed that apart from Chennai, the Gurgaon and the Pune servers are also facing the issue, which will take an hour to resolve.

Earlier this month, aviation regulator DGCA had told IndiGo to replace the Pratt and Whitney (PW) engines under both wings of 97 A320neo aircraft "at all costs" by January 31, 2020 or they would be grounded. Of the 97 aircraft, 23 have PW engines that have been used for more than 2,900 hours and have to be replaced in the first tranche by November 19, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) told the low-cost carrier.

To boost load factor at its recently-launched international flights, IndiGo on Sunday launched a brand campaign called "IndiGo Abroad: Happy to be your first." Earlier this year, the airline had launched its  flights  to  Turkey,  China,  Vietnam, Myanmar and Saudi Arabia.
