Vijayawada, Visakhapatnam Airports to Resume Domestic Flights on May 26; West Bengal From May 28

New Delhi: Come Monday, the Indian skies will open up for domestic passenger flights after a gap of two months. However, there are some airports which will not be able to operate flights from Monday.
A number of states such as Maharashtra, West Bengal and Tamil Nadu were opposed to opening up of their airports in view of increasing cases of the coronavirus infection, making it tough for the airlines as well as the civil aviation authorities to resume services.
Notably, these states of Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal are home to some of the busiest airports in terms of passenger traffic.
Earlier in the day, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh on Twitter said that it is extremely ill-advised to reopen airports in red zones.
Expressing similar sentiments, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee also said she will urge the Centre to postpone the resumption of domestic flight services at Kolkata and Bagdogra airports by a few days.
On the other hand, many states expressed serious reservations about the Centre’s decision to start flight services. Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Bihar, Punjab, Assam and Andhra Pradesh have announced their respective quarantine measures for passengers arriving at their airports.
