New Delhi | Jagran Business Desk: The coronavirus pandemic hit hard the airline sector across the world. Several airlines globally grounded their planes in order to save money to cope up with the devastating effect of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown restricting international as well as domestic air travel.

This offer will not only strengthen their resolve towards vaccination but also ensure that they can travel safely at affordable fares with IndiGo," the airline said in a press release.
