Since the first day of resumption of flights to and from Delhi Airport, more than 80 flights have been canceled. The chaos and dissatisfaction is all the greater, as the passengers claim that they have not received any prior notification from the airlines.
Flight services from Delhi Airport resumed today, May 25, 2020. Delhi Airport had its first departure at 4:45 am to Pune, while the first departure from Mumbai Airport was at 6:45 am to Patna .
Since March 25, all commercial flights have been suspended across India, canceled or postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, to prevent its spread.
The resumption of flights is currently done only internally, currently international flights are still suspended. From the first resumed flight, all passengers were seen wearing masks and protective gloves. Also, the temperature of each passenger was taken before entering the airport.
Delhi airport staff has begun to ensure optimal and efficient sanitation, using disinfectant, especially in areas with high traffic and high risk of infection.
Unfortunately, however, with the new legal provisions for operation and social distance, airports and airlines must adapt their working conditions so that they can ensure the functionality of a flight in conditions of maximum safety. Of course, all procedures only make checks more difficult and increase the waiting time of passengers, but all measures are essential to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, but to resume commercial activities.
Soon other countries around the world will probably open airports to resume domestic and international flight activity.
