Domestic Flights To Resume From May 25
After a two-month-long shutdown, domestic flights in India are set to resume from coming Monday in a calibrated manner, the government announced today.
Hardeep Puri, Union minister for civil aviation took to his twitter account and announced the flights shall resume from 25 May in a calibrated manner. He also wrote that all the airports and air carriers are being informed to be ready for the operation.
However, there are certain norms and guidelines to be followed by the passengers this time. These include carrying one baggage item, to reach airports earlier than usual, getting scanned thermally while departing and arriving, and to stand at marked designated areas at every place from check-in counters to food and beverage outlets.
The busiest airports in the country in cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru airports are also setting up thermal screening counters at departure and arrival gates.
Cabin crew members of Indian airlines will have personal protective equipment (PPE) like face shields, gowns and masks as part of their attire on commercial passenger flights when they resume operations, industry sources said.
