"We are looking at ways to generate extra revenue to meet our expenses. We have flown charters for foreign governments and have also helped private executives return home on charter flights," said Simran Singh Tiwana, CEO of Bengalaru based Star Air.
Demand for overseas charters, however, is expected to taper off by July end as India is expected to open regular commercial flights on international routes.
"We have been operating multiple international and domestic charters on a daily basis for over a month now. Many companies
have been booking charter flights to transport employees to various work locations both within and outside the country," a SpiceJet spokesperson said.
