This is reflective of travel demand on Skyscanner, with the company observing the highest spike in search volume in 2023 since pre-pandemic of 2019 for both domestic and international destinations.

When accessing flight options on Skyscanner travelers will now automatically be redirected to the Hindi locale on the airline or OTA site.
