Airlines Ready For Flights From April 15; Need Govt. Clarity

As we write, PM Narendra Modi has further extended lockdown until May 3, 2020 to help fight Covid 19. A senior official from the DGCA said there has been no green signal given for flights resumption and once such a call is taken the informatuion shall be given.

It is to be highlighted while all of the airlines have started bookings except Air India from April 15, there remains lack of clarity whether they will be able to take off all such flights as per schedule.

"All primary preparations are in place. We have implemented all social distancing norms across our transit coaches, boarding stairs. We are not looking at resuming our entire network in one go, but we are ready to resume a small part of our network. However, all depends on what the government decides to do regarding air travel post April 15. We continue to seek clarity on that from the government," a senior official at a low-cost carrier said.

The phase I of lockdown that will end today has brought to halt as many as 650 planes in the country.

So, after the extension of lockdown has been announced, much now needs clarity from the government on the resumption of airline services.
