- Permission to increase domestic air services.
- Instructed by the Union Ministry of Civil Aviation.
- Eighty-five percent of domestic services will be resumed.
The ministry had earlier allowed airlines to operate 72.5 per cent of services from August 12. The Center is of the view that the acute Covid crisis can be resolved with the launch of more services. The assessment is that the concessions given to expatriates at the time of the move to return to work will be beneficial.
Only 33 per cent of services have been licensed since last year’s lockdown restrictions following the Covid expansion. By December, domestic services had risen to 80 percent. But as the second wave of Covid hit the country, services were reduced to 50 per cent in June 2021.
Total services rose to 65 percent on July 5 after the second wave of subsequent restrictions. The services were later fixed at 72.5 per cent after August 12, after the states announced further concessions.
The Central Government’s decision to increase domestic air services has benefited the expatriates as they continue to prepare to return to work. Expatriates are hopeful that more services to foreign countries will resume as the number of Covid cases decreases day by day.
