    The Supreme Court also asked, "Why should credit being issued by the airlines be limited to a short period or for the same route?"

    The Supreme Court went on to suggest that passengers whose flight tickets were cancelled should get a time period of at least two years to use the credit amount.

    "Allow a passenger to use that credit for any route," said the Supreme Court.

    A plea was also raised that airlines across the world are facing tough time due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and they too be heard as parties to the plea filed by one NGO, 'Pravasi Legal Cell'.
