AI allays fears, assures govt of following Covid protocol

Kolkata: Air India on Thursday allayed concerns of the state government and airport officials about the Vande Bharat (VB) flights from London to Kolkata and assured them that its team was reaching out to passengers and informing them about the need to get themselves tested for Covid-19 before boarding.
The assurance comes in the wake of queries from passengers on the availability of quarantine facilities at Kolkata airport. The questions triggered concern over whether AI was adequately conveying to passengers the need for mandatory RT-PCR tests. The state government, while giving its in-principle nod, had made it clear that the airline must allow only those passengers who test negative.

“The AI team in the UK has been making every effort to reach out to passengers of the Vande Bharat Mission flights from London to Kolkata and inform them about the requirements through all the travel agents in the country. It also urged the Indian Embassy there to publicize the state government’s advisory,” an airline spokesperson said.
