"It has helped us deliver strong growth in a quarter that is typically a seasonally slower period for leisure travel," MakeMyTrip Group Chief Executive Officer Rajesh Magow said.

Indians are embracing the call to travel with a newfound enthusiasm with both leisure and business-related travel demand in the country having crossed pre-pandemic levels, he added.

"...we have bounced back stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic by posting our best-ever financial performance during fiscal year 2024 in terms of both gross bookings and profit," Magow said.
