Profit for the fourth quarter included a one-time credit of $126.1 million on recognition of deferred tax assets and a one-time gain of $30.6 million due to the change in carrying value of the company's convertible notes due 2028 measured at amortised cost, it added.

"Our strategy to serve millions of our customers and first-time travellers through a comprehensive portfolio of travel and ancillary products with personalised experiences is yielding results.
"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.
