Prepare For Bookings After May 18, Airlines Tell Online Travel Agents

New Delhi: As the civil aviation ministry is going through the several suggestions received from airlines and airports on steps to be implemented after the flight operations resume post-lockdown, reports said airlines have already asked online travel agents to prepare for bookings after May 18. A Mint report quoted travel executives confirming the same.
In his address to the nation on Tuesday evening, PM Modi said lockdown 4.0 will be in force from May 18. But it will be very different from the earlier phases of lockdown, dropping hints that domestic airlines may start operations between airports falling under green zones — areas which have not reported any new COVID-19 cases in the last 14 days.
Among the suggestions received, a policy of no cabin baggage in the initial phase has been also been proposed. The mandatory passenger ID check at the airport entry has also been suggested to be done away with to minimize rush at the entry as it has no significant value addition. It has also been recommended that passenger with green status on Aarogya Setu App only will be allowed to travel.
Checking and frisking have also been suggested to be minimized and should be carried out only if DFMD beeps. The stamping of boarding passes by the CISF has been advised to be dispensed with.
