As per the new rules, no meals would be served on any flight, temperature checks using hand-held thermal scanners are mandatory for all passengers, no passenger with any symptoms of the coronavirus disease would be allowed to board a flight, all passengers must have Aarogya Setu app on their smartphones and full protective gear is mandatory for the crew.
