Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri on Wednesday said domestic civil aviation operations will recommence in a calibrated manner from May 25 (Monday).

Puri informed that all airports and air carriers are being informed to be ready for operations from 25th May.

“All airports and air carriers are being informed to be ready for operations from 25 May. SOPs for passenger movement also being separately issued by the ministry,” he said in a tweet.

Yesterday, Puri tweeted saying, “It is not up to Ministry of Civil Aviation or centre alone to decide on resuming domestic flights. In the spirit of cooperative federalism, the govt of states where these flights will take off & land should be ready to allow civil aviation operations.”

“We are absolutely ready and we could start domestic civil aviation at any time with a little bit of notice. Obviously, if we get the green signal today, it will take two or three days for the airlines to open bookings and for us to calibrate the number of flights we can start with,” Puri said in a webinar.
