You must have noticed that Indigo crew members are often seen carrying their luggage to the airport and hotel before the scheduled flight time. But have you ever seen these members moving their goods from wheat fields to the airport on foot?
On 8 December, when farmers had called for Bandh against all three agricultural laws, different pictures came out from all over the country. At the same time, crew members of Indigo faced a situation which they would not have imagined. Pilots and crew members had to go through a thin path between wheat fields to reach the airport.

Airport route closed
The farmers closed India on 8 December. During this time, traffic in the capital of Punjab, Chandigarh, was completely halted. The route leading to the airport was completely halted due to the farmers' shutdown.
Seeing no way to go to the airport, the crew members picked up their luggage and took it through the wheat fields. During this, crew members had to walk a distance of about two km. Crew members also made a video of themselves going, which is now going viral on social media.
India Today confirmed the video and according to the report, the video is of the day of Bharat Bandh on 8 December.
