As we know all the domestic and international airlines had come to halt after the Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the lockdown to fight against the deadly coronavirus. The Ministry of Civil Aviation clarifies that so far no decision has been taken to open domestic or international operations.
Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri on Saturday said airlines are “advised” to open bookings only after the government takes a decision on starting domestic and international commercial passenger flight services.
Earlier in the day, Air India said it has opened bookings on select domestic flights from May 4 and on select international flights from June 1.The first phase of the lockdown imposed in the country in view of the coronavirus outbreak was from March 25 to April 14 and the second phase that started on April 15 will end on May 3.
However, cargo flights and special flights authorised by aviation regulator DGCA have been permitted to operate during this period.
