No flight from UK landed in city: Officials

Jaipur: Rajasthan currently appears to be safe from the latest Covid strain as no flights from UK have landed here. Officials said since no direct flight lands here, chances of the new strain entering the state is minimum.

India on Monday suspended all passenger flights to and from the UK between December 23 and 31, joining dozens of countries that have clamped limited or comprehensive travel bans in a worldwide scramble to keep out the new coronavirus strain spreading fast across Britain.

“We have never had direct flights from the UK in the past as well and none has been started afresh. Even if someone wants to take a connecting flight to Jaipur before the ban comes into place, they would have to take the mandatory test at the respective airports where they land. Usually passengers travelling from the UK land in Delhi from where they take a connecting flight to Jaipur. But now they will not be allowed to travel further,” said an official at Jaipur International Airport.
