Domestic Flight Services To Resume From May 25 In a ‘calibrated Manner’

Union Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri has announced that domestic flight services will  recommence  in a calibrated manner from May 25 onwards. In a tweet, Puri said that all airports and air carriers are being informed to be ready for operations from Monday onwards. He added that the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for passenger movement is also being separately issued.

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.
