Flyers reluctant to book tickets

Patna: Even as airlines have started accepting online bookings for domestic flights after April 14, the response of flyers is far from satisfactory.
People are so scared of coronavirus that even lower airfares on different routes have failed to enthuse them. While a trip from Delhi to Patna from April 18 till May 31 will cost only Rs 1,900-Rs 2,100 per passenger, the average airfare on Delhi-Patna route is between Rs 2,500 and Rs 5,000, according to travel websites. Similarly, the airfare on Patna-Mumbai route has come down to Rs 3,384 post lockdown period.
Aviation experts said people are refraining from booking flight tickets fearing extension of lockdown and further spread of coronavirus. “Even though we are not able to track the number of bookings as they are being made online, we have received several emails regarding queries,” a SpiceJet executive at Patna airport said.
