The IndiGo flights that have been cancelled are from Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Patna, Srinagar, Bhubaneswar, Amritsar, Srinagar and Guwahati, among others. Of these, IndiGo has 33 and GoAir 12 planes.

"The DGCA (Director General of Civil Aviation) decision to ground 14 A320 Neo aircraft of IndiGo and GoAir and the consequent cancellation of flights has resulted in a fairly significant impact on airfares for immediate travel on some key routes", Sharat Dhall, COO (B2C), told the Indian Express. IndiGo operates up to 1,000 flights a day while GoAir has around 230 flights daily. They would like to restore the flights as soon as possible by making alternative arrangements.

IndiGo, which operates 1,000-odd flights per day, has had to replace Pratt & Whitney engines on its 32 A320 Neo aircraft at least 69 times in the period May 2016-November 2017.
