Thursday, 21st May 2020

Domestic flights will be resumed from May 25th, Hardeep Puri, Union Minister for Civil Aviation wrote on Twitter adding that they will operate in “calibrated manner”.


All airports and air carriers are being informed to be ready for operations from May 25”, he declared.

Standard operating method for the same will be announced by the Ministry of Civil Aviation shortly.


Center has lifted the restrictions and thus, India is now ready to resume air travel. Measures will be taken by the airports to ensure safety of passengers from coronavirus. Airports Authority of India (AAI) had asked the airport managers to prepare themselves for resuming the operation.


Once the lockdown period is declared to be over, airports shall be facilitating limited domestic/international scheduled flights in phases, to start with, maybe at 30 per cent capacity to facilitate required social distancing”, AAI's directorate of operations stated.


What are the measures taken?

  • Filling Covid-19 related questionnaire form
  • No cabin baggage
  • Use of Aarogya Setu, a must
  • Reaching the airport at least two hours before departure
  • Cabin crew staffs will be safeguarded using PPE


Now we won't be able to permit queues at airports. Maybe you will have to print your boarding pass from home and passengers may have to arrive at the airport before the scheduled time. Even several airport procedures may have to be reduced. We may allow just one bag per person. The meal service also might be restricted. We have developed a strategy and will finalize this soon”, Union minister Hardeep Puri had said.
