Airlines can operate at 70-75% of pre-Covid levels, clarifies govt

The Ministry of Civil Aviation (MOCA) said on Thursday that the cap on the number of domestic flights that Indian airlines are permitted to operate would be increased to 70-75 percent of their pre-Covid levels as passenger traffic surges. The ministry had said last week that the Indian airlines can operate maximum 60 percent of their pre-Covid domestic passenger flights till February 24 next year due to the prevailing coronavirus situation. 'MOCA is monitoring traffic everyday, and it is expected that the traffic would further pick up because of the festival season. As passenger traffic increases, the upper cap would be revised to 70-75 percent of the normal capacity in coming days’, the ministry said in a press release on Thursday.
