Common Flight Operations to renew from January 2021 says Civil Aviation Minister
At a recent B-School event held in India, Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said normal air traffic is resuming regularly, just as it was before the coronavirus pandemic spread across the planet. It could resume in late December 2020 or early January 2021, the minister said.
Mr Puri also said the aviation sector reopened on May 25, which is about two months after the full lockdown, serving about 30,000 passengers a day. Due to the festive occasion of Deepavali, the number rose to 2.25 lakh passengers.
He added that civil aviation is 70% busy and that passengers are being admitted in a calibrated manner. They plan to operate the normal phase of the airline up to a capacity of at least 80% and through the end of December 2020 or beginning of January 2021. The journey will continue.
Puri also reportedly said that it is mandatory to follow safety rules once civil aviation begins operations in the country. Meanwhile, flights from the UK, US and Japan will continue to operate to and from the new bubble deal.
