India is set to resume domestic flights two months after the government imposed a lockdown to curb the spread of coronavirus.
The flights will start from next Monday “in a calibrated manner”, according to the civil aviation minister.
However, the “new normal” will also see new rules for flyers – passengers will need to have downloaded a government contact-tracing app, and they will also be subject to thermal screening.
Flyers will also need to wear masks and gloves while inside airports.
Civil aviation minister Hardeep Puri said all airports and airlines were being “informed to be ready for operations”.
Domestic civil aviation operations will recommence in a calibrated manner from Monday 25th May 2020.
All airports & air carriers are being informed to be ready for operations from 25th May.
SOPs for passenger movement are also being separately issued by @MoCA_GoI.
