Other services segment posted revenue of Rs 85.7 lakh from Rs 9.9 lakh in the previous year, the filing said. In the past two years, the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic led to various restrictions on travel across the globe leading to high number of cancellations and limited new air travel, hotel packages, bus and train bookings.

However, with the pandemic easing off and restrictions lifted, there has been a recovery in the travel and tourism industry.

Now, the travel and aviation industries are showing an upward growth trajectory, the company said.

Easy Trip Planners said it is focused on expanding its non-air verticals this fiscal, while also aiming to grow across the air ticketing segment and expand in hotels and holidays segments too in the coming quarters.
