Interglobe Aviation, the owner of India's largest airline by market share IndiGo, reported a 73.3 per cent decline in March profit after tax pulled down by higher fuel prices, grounded aircrafts in March coupled with weaker rupee. It further said that Rahul Bhatia, a promoter of the company, has been appointed as the interim CEO, the company said in the filing.

"Aditya Ghosh has resigned and will leave the company on July 31".

Ghosh's resignation has come at a time when the budget carrier was embroiled primarily in two issues - one pertaining to the glitches with Pratt & Whitney engines on board its Airbus A320neo flight, a problem that has lasted for more than a year leading to non-optimal fleet utilisation and mass flight cancellations; and two about recurrent cases of airline's staff misbehaving with passengers going public. "We booked a forex loss of Rs 92.5 crore this quarter as compared to a gain of Rs 160 crore in the same period a year ago". In the last fiscal, the total income stood at Rs 23,967.74 crore compared to Rs 19,369.57 crore in the same period a year ago. Total expenses jumped 30.2 per cent to Rs 5,891 crore, including a 33.5 per cent increase in fuel costs in the January-March quarter.

"Results include certain credits received from manufacturers to offset some of the impact of aircraft groundings and delivery delays", IndiGo said in a statement.
