"Indians Soar In The Skies Again": Aviation Minister Shares Flight Tracker Map

New Delhi: Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri today shared pictures of air activity above Indian airspace as the government resumed domestic flights after nearly two months. The screenshot from flight tracking website FlightRadar24 shows heavy traffic over the Indian airspace while airspace above neighbouring countries hardly see any moment.
"Indians soar in the skies again! A beautiful live capture from #flightradar24 shows how our skies look busy again as domestic civil aviation recommences in India from today," he tweeted.

Earlier in the day FlightRadar24 had shared screenshots comparing last week air activity with that at 4:30 am today, when first flights took to the skies.

Domestic flights operated on Monday for the first time since late-March, when the country went into lockdown to break the chain of coronavirus. Many were stuck in cities they were visiting when all flights were stopped.

The flights resumed after what Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said was "a long day of hard negotiations" on Sunday with various state governments that were not on board with the idea.
