No decision on domestic or international flight operations: MoCA


Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri on Saturday clarifies that the Ministry of Civil aviation has not taken any decision on Domestic or International flight operations yet.

This comes hours after Air India on its website said it is taking bookings for travel from May 4 on some domestic routes and from June 1 for international routes.

“The Ministry of Civil Aviation clarifies that so far no decision has been taken to open domestic or international operations. Airlines are advised to open their bookings only after a decision in this regard has been taken by the Government,” Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri tweeted.

Earlier, state-run carrier Air India said it is, however, not taking any booking for domestic flights for travel till May 3, or the day the extended lockdown over the COVID-19 pandemic is scheduled to end. Air India has also stopped taking bookings for international flights till May 31.

“The situation is being constantly reviewed and we shall keep you updated,” Air India said on its website.
