On Friday, InterGlobe Aviation that runs IndiGo, Jet Airways (India) and SpiceJet were up in the range of 4% to 5% on the BSE. In the past three trading days, these stocks have rallied between 11% and 16%, against 1% rise in the benchmark index. Meanwhile, the rupee opened stronger on Friday helped by a drop in global crude oil prices overnight and a recovery in the domestic share market. Despite the run-up in the past three trading days, the airline stocks are underperforming the market by falling between 45% and 68%, against 1.
