In light of recent events that have occurred almost all over India, Spicejet, the privately run airline, has offered to lend a helping hand to all migrant workers who are stuck in Delhi and Mumbai. Since a major chunk of the migrant labour in these two big cities comes from Uttar Pradesh & Bihar, Spicejet is offering to run flights, to help the migrants' cause.


The private airline company stated that they were ready to give their staff and services to whatever humanitarian need the government would require. Additionally, while domestic and international travels have shut down, IndiGo and GoAir have also made similar claims.

Even in the face of a situation as tough as the COVID-19 virus, the company is already flying food, medicine and medical facilities across the country on a daily basis. Following the news of many labourers walking over distances spanning hundreds of kilometers, the company is taking another humanitarian step.

"SpiceJet has offered our aircraft and crew for any humanitarian mission that the government needs us to fly. We would love to alleviate the suffering of these migrant workers especially those from Bihar by flying some flights between Delhi/Mumbai and Patna," Ajay Singh, Chairman and Managing Director, SpiceJet said in a statement.

Another laudable step of theirs includes an emergency flight which carried a hazmat suit to Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. This
