Chaos and short-term cancellations on the first day of resumption of air traffic in India

May 25, 2020

The first day of resumption of air traffic in India has passed between last minute cancellations as several states in the country have decided to limit the number of flights a few hours before the planes depart, causing chaos among passengers. .

The new restrictions introduced this Monday at the country’s major airports, including Bombay and Chennai, have hampered plans by airlines such as IndiGo, SpiceJet, and Vistara to take action due to a third of their full capacity against the corona virus that are still in effect.

As a result, airlines have warned that this “confusion” will further hinder companies’ economic recovery after two months in prison to prevent the spread of the virus, which has already left millions of dollars in losses.

“Resumption of operations has been significantly reduced, which is a major blow to airlines, airports and passengers,” complain sources close to the NDTV network. In New Delhi alone, 82 flights were suspended, which caused outrage among the passengers.
