Consolidated revenue from operations during the quarter under review stood at Rs 60.9 crore as against Rs 66.47 crore in the corresponding period a year ago, it added.
Air segment bookings grew by 13 per cent to 20.5 lakh in the fourth quarter as compared to 18.2 lakh in the year-ago period, the company said.
