Domestic airlines can operate at full capacity from October 18 onwards
The aviation ministry, in a big move that will bring normalcy in domestic flight operations, today lifted all restrictions on the number of flights airlines can operate. “After review of the current status of scheduled domestic operations vis-a-vis passenger demand for air travel in terms of purpose specified in the initial order no 01/2020 dated 21.05. 2020, condition laid down in para 2 of the order… It has been decided to restore the scheduled domestic air operations with effect from 18.10.2021 without any capacity restrictions,” the government said in an order today.
The order also said, “The airlines/airport operators shall, however, ensure that the guidelines to contain the spread of COVID are strictly adhered to and COVID appropriate behaviour is strictly enforced by them during travel.”
