Flight eve confusion

New Delhi: Indian skies will open up for domestic passenger flights from Monday after a gap of two months but there was confusion after states imposed their own set of conditions and rules which are at odds with each other.

Many states such as Maharashtra, Bengal and Tamil Nadu were initially reluctant to open up their airports in view of rising cases of the coronavirus infection, making it difficult for the airlines as well as the civil aviation authorities to resume services. The states have now agreed to start operations.

On Sunday afternoon, AirAsia India said on Twitter that all passengers must read the health protocols of the destination states and it would “not be responsible for repatriating or bearing any quarantine or related costs of any guests”.

In the midst of uncertainty and confusion, representatives of airlines and several states held multiple meetings with top officials of the civil aviation ministry on Sunday covering a range of contentious issues such as quarantine rules for flyers , officials said.

However, it is not immediately clear whether uniform quarantine rules as envisaged could be finalised in the meetings.
