It has been said in the order that due to increase in active cases of Corona, there has been a decrease in air traffic, due to which this decision has been taken.
The Civil Aviation Ministry said on Friday that all airlines in the country can operate up to 50 per cent of the maximum flights that can be operated before Corona, 80 per cent of the flights are allowed at this time. The Civil Aviation Ministry has said in the order that this decision has been taken due to the decrease in air traffic due to increase in the number of active cases in Corona cases.
The government re-launched domestic flights on 25 May. At that time 33 per cent of domestic services flights were allowed to operate, which was increased to 80 per cent in December. According to the new order of the Ministry on Friday, it has been reduced to 50 percent.
Domestic travel is going to be expensive
Domestic air travel is going to be expensive with the reduction of domestic flights. The government has increased the air fare limit by 13 to 16 percent. Information was given in this regard in the official order issued by the Ministry of Civil Aviation on Friday. This increase in air travel fares will come into effect from June 1. The higher air fare limit, however, has been kept the same. This move of the government will help the airline companies. Due to the second wave of COVID-19, there has been a huge reduction in the number of air passengers, due to which the income of the airlines companies has decreased.
Lower limit increased from 2300 to 2600 rupees
Lower and higher limits of air travel fare were fixed on the basis of air flight duration in the country. This limit was fixed at the opening of the lockdown on May 25, which lasted two months last year. The new official order of the Civil Aviation Ministry said on Friday that the lower fare limit for air flight of up to 40 minutes has been increased from Rs 2,300 to Rs 2,600. It has been increased by 13 percent. Similarly, the lower fare limit for a flight of 40 minutes to 60 minutes will now be Rs. 3,300 per person instead of Rs. 2,900.
