Hit by Covid-19, domestic flight operations dip by 50% at Coimbatore airport

Amidst the increasing number of Covid-19 cases, resulting in the fall in demand for air travel, Coimbatore International Airport has recorded a 50 percent dip in the number of domestic flight operations in the city.

According to a report published in the Times of India (TOI), only 12 domestic flights are being operated from the city airport, out of which some also got cancelled due to fewer passengers.

The frequency of flights to Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Mumbai has also come down. Meanwhile, the flights to Tirupati, Pune and Goa have been completely stopped.

However, international flights to Sharjah and Singapore continue to operate as before.

Notably, the Covid-19 situation in the country and the resultant travel curbs have significantly affected flight operations.

As per reports by TOI, Mukuntha Kumar said, “Only business people and those travelling for education depend on air travel now. Leisure travel has taken a back seat as people want to avoid unnecessary travel.”
