Domestic airline operations are set to resume from airports in a graded manner from 25th of May. Home Ministry had on the 20th of this month amended the guidelines on lockdown measures to fight COVID-19, to facilitate domestic air travel.

He informed that all arrangements have been made at the airports to ensure contactless boarding and prevent any chances of contagion.

AIR correspondent reports that commercial passenger flights at Delhi airport will initially operate from Terminal 3. Delhi International Airport Limited today said that all flights will be operating from Terminal 3. Entry gates, self check-in machines and check-in bays will be allocated to airlines to avoid overcrowding by air travellers at the airport.
