Ban on international flights to continue till July 31
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has extended the ban on the movement of scheduled international commercial flights in India till 31 July 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic. This restriction will not apply to international all-cargo operations and specifically to flights approved by the aviation regulator. Flights operated under bilateral air bubble agreements with select countries will continue.
Those who violate the rules of Corona will be fined
Recently the DGCA had said that all airport operators must ensure that people are wearing masks properly at the airport and during travel. Along with this, safe physical distance will also have to be maintained in the airport premises. The DGCA also directed the airlines to conduct a surprise check. If airlines are unable to ensure that the rules are followed inside the aircraft, they can also be fined. Also, if a person does not obey despite repeated warnings, he will be treated as an ‘unruly traveller’.
