"IndiGo has cancelled certain flights due to the grounding of our aircraft further to the DGCA directions which has been issued in the interest of safety", the airline said.

Even as Indigo and GoAir announced cancellations of close to 630 domestic flights this month, Union Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha on Friday said that it was important to note that this was just 2% of capacity and that with two new planes being added every week, the government expected supply-demand to be back in balance quickly. "Alternate arrangements are made or offered to minimise impact and inconvenience; in cases where appropriate, free cancellation and re-booking options have been made available", the airline said. Citing the threat posed to passenger safety, the flight regulator DGCA ordered IndiGo and GoAir to ground all its flights powered with Pratt & Whitney engines.

The Delhi High Court today refused to ground the entire fleet of IndiGos A320neo aircraft on a plea alleging the planes have defective engines. "The same has also been published on our website".
