Good news for domestic flyers, as the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) on Monday, i.e., 25 May 2020, uplifted the ban on flights after two months. The ban that was implemented on the 24 March to fight coronavirus has now been diluted though not fully but partially.
Reportedly, on day 1 – around 39,231 passengers flew in 532 voyages, and the government is planning a lot more than this. Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri stated while addressing the media that the airports are much concerned about hygiene and sanitization and so are taking care of the same.
Also, all the possible actions are being conducted to make the flyers maintain social distancing norms, along with the mandatory-screening. Every single passenger is being screened by the airports.
As of now, the government has allowed the private operators only – fixed-wing, helicopters, and microlight aircraft to fly. Even there is no fixed schedule for the flights yet. But soon, there will be more announcements.
