With the nationwide lockdown to prevent spread of virus during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, INS Dega of ENC ensured that the joint-user airfield at Visakhapatnam remains open round the clock. The manning of the airfield has been modified to ensure that all requisite safety services and airfield facilities continued to be available. This ensured that all special flights, as well as, the cargo flight of SpiceJet continued its operations unhindered. So far, 15 sorties of the cargo flight have operated since the lockdown has been enforced.

Further, the Indian Navy continued to maintain its operational vigil carrying out regular Maritime Surveillance missions by day and night.  The Dornier squadron of the Eastern Naval Command, INAS 311, operating from the air station, has been undertaking regular maritime surveillance missions as well as providing humanitarian assistance at the time of this unprecedented crisis. The squadron undertook multiple missions to ferry in personnel and equipment essentially required to fight the pandemic. Thus, airlift of doctors and medical equipment was carried out to augment the efforts of ENC in its fight against the Global Pandemic. Additionally, all other air assets have been kept mission-ready and prepared for immediate deployment should the need arise.
