India increases domestic air travel capacity for airlines


Kolkata, India: Domestic airlines get GOI to greenlight to increase passenger capacity to 60% from the earlier restricted capacity.

The report comes as several nations announced a flight ban to and from India in the wake of a high-risk Covid variant.

After examining the current state of Scheduled Domestic Operations in light of the rising passenger demand for domestic air travel, the Ministry made this decision.

According to a tweet from the Ministry, the order issued in this regard will be in effect until the 31st of this month or until future directives, whichever comes first.

In accordance with a Ministry order issued on May 28th, airlines have been running only 50% of their pre-COVID domestic flights since June 1, 2021. Previously, the cap was set at 80%.

Meanwhile, the Union Government is dedicated to speeding up COVID-19 vaccination and expanding its coverage across the country.

The new phase of COVID-19 vaccination universalization began on June 21, 2021. The vaccine supply chain has also been streamlined.

More vaccines have been made available, as well as advanced awareness of vaccine availability to States and UTs to allow for better planning.

So far, more than 37.07 crores (37,07,23,840) vaccine doses have been distributed to States/UTs from various sources, with another 23,80,000 doses on the way.

Of this, the total consumption including wastages is 35,40,60,197 doses, according to DD News.
