New Delhi : After the start of bus and train services amid lockdowns in the country, domestic flight service has also started from today. After the suspension of flights for about two months, the operation of domestic aircraft has been restored across the country from today. The first flight to Pune departed at 4:45 a.m. at Indira Gandhi International Airport, Delhi. Passengers started arriving at the airport late at night from all over the country except Andhra Pradesh and West Bengal.
On the other hand, all the preparations were seen at the Delhi airport. At the airport, passengers started flooding late Sunday night. Airport security has been deployed for social distance. They were constantly seen outside the terminal advising passengers to maintain social distance. There were frequent announcements at the airport. At the same time all the passengers were seen wearing masks.
Passengers will be able to buy sanitizers, PPE kits and masks at the airport
Arrangements have been made for the passengers to leave one seat on the chairs, although there is also the question of how people will be able to keep social distance if the crowd increases before the time. Along with that, kiosks were seen at every other gate at the airport, where sanitizers, PPE kits, masks and other items have been made available for people to buy.
In the first phase of this launch, 2800 flights are planned. Air traffic in the country was suspended from March 24 to prevent the spread of the coronavirus which has now been resumed after two months of corona lockdown. About 380 aircraft will be operating at Delhi Airport today. About 190 planes will depart from the airport and about 190 planes will land.
