32,000 arrivals in 24 days at Srinagar Airport

As many as 32,000 people arrived at the Srinagar International Airport since May 25 when routine passenger air traffic was restored after two months of hiatus owing to outbreak of Covid-19.

As per official data, 256 airliners including seven international flights touched down at the airport during this period. Of the total number of passenger arrivals, almost 1400 arrived from Jammu.

Officials coordinating the testing and other formalities of the arriving passengers said that “barring travellers coming from Jammu and defence personnel”, all other passengers who arrived at the airport were tested for Covid-19 and put under administrative quarantine till their reports came out negative.

“Considering travellers from Jammu move from an ‘Orange Zone’ to a ‘Red Zone’, they are exempted from testing. The defence personnel have their own testing protocol,” the official said.
