india will resume the domestic flights from May 25th and this would reboot the air travel which was stopped two months ago due to the lockdown imposed to stop the spread of coronavirus disease. Civil Aviation minister said, "All airports and air carriers are being informed to be ready for operations from 25th May.
Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for passenger movement are also being separately issued by the civil aviation ministry. The government’s plan for the resumption of services may feature recommending a price band for different routes keeping in mind of both the consumer and the airline."
The passengers will be following certain guidelines laid down by the state and as proposed earlier, the middle seats will not be left vacant. Also, passengers who carry luggage over 80 kilos will not be allowed to board. The identity checks will happen as usual at the terminal gates and a final call is yet to be taken. Domestic flight services have been put on hold since march 25, when the nationwide lockdown was first imposed, and international flights have not arrived in india since march 22. Cargo flights and those evacuating foreign nationals have been operating though.
