The new progress has come in just a day after the Civil Aviation Minister stated that the Centre alone cannot operate domestic flights that the state governments will also have to be ready to operate domestic flights. In a notice issued by the DGCA earlier, domestic and international aviation operations had been restricted till May 31 under the fourth phase of the lockdown.
