The aircraft will now be able to fly home with 100% passengers. On Tuesday, the civil aviation ministry allowed domestic flights to operate with 100 per cent passenger capacity. So far, only 85 percent of full-capacity passengers have been able to travel in a single plane. However, the ban has now been lifted.
The government banned the capacity of passengers on flights due to the global corona epidemic. On the 18th of last month, the ministry had given permission to fly with 85 per cent capacity, which has now been announced to be 100 per cent. The order states that Corona virus guidelines will still be followed on aircraft and airports as before. During the trip, Corona is also asked to strictly follow the rules.
As per the order of the Ministry of Civil Aviation, the airlines have been operating 85 per cent of their domestic services since September 18. The airlines are operating 72.5 per cent of their pre-Covid domestic flights between August 12 and September 18. Between July 5 and August 12, the limit was 65 percent. Between June 1 and July 5, the limit was 50 percent.
Significantly, scheduled international flights were banned from March 23, 2020 due to the Corona. However, since May 2020, special international flights have been operating under the Vande Bharat Mission. Apart from this, flights have been operating with selected countries since July 2020 under a bilateral air bubble system.
