International Flights likely to start mid-June says Union Aviation Minister

New Delhi: Union Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said on Saturday that International flight operations may start by mid-June or end-July if the COVID-19 virus “behaves in a predictable manner.”

“Why wait till August or September? If situation eases or improves, if virus behaves in predictable manner and we get used to co-exist(ing) with it, we’re in position to make arrangements. Why not start by June middle or end July?” Puri said.

He also said that the government is mulling towards restarting a “good percentage” of passenger flights which was ceased owing to the coronavirus lockdown.
