Jaipur: Steady rise recorded in domestic flights

Jaipur: Covid fear is gradually fading away if one looked at rising number of domestic flights to and from Jaipur airport.
Though the airport had started operating merely three to four flights per day in May with merely 100 to 300 passengers, it is now operating 22 flights per day carrying more than 4,000 passengers. Two more flights will be added in the schedule from Tuesday.
TOI on Monday spoke to various operators and airport authorities to know how the fear among passengers was fading away.

“When we started our operations during the last week of May, we had three to four flights with merely 100 to 300 passengers. Now we are operating 18 to 20 flights per day. On Monday, we operated 21 flights with the inclusion of the Jaipur-Chandigarh flight,” said a senior airport officer.

When contacted, airport director Jaideep Singh Balhara said, “The kind of SOPs we are following along with what operators are doing have helped passengers to overcome the fear. Many operators are providing masks, sanitizers and PPE kits. From Tuesday we would have two more flights including Jaipur to Mumbai and Jaipur to Kolkata. With this inclusion, we would be operating 24 flights per day.”
