Govt allows airlines to operate with 60% capacity
The government has now allowed airlines to operate with 60 percent capacity in the domestic segment, as per a decision taken on Wednesday. The domestic flight operations were allowed to resume from May 25 after a two-month shutdown and airlines were asked to operate with one-third capacity.
Gradually, the government allowed airlines to operate with 45 percent capacity and now it has been extended to 60 percent with immediate effect.
As per the order, the decision has been taken in view of the current scheduled domestic flight operations and the demand seen for air travel in the domestic market.
The daily domestic air traffic has increased to over 100,000 passengers from around 40,000 passengers in the month of May. Similarly, the number of daily flight departures have also increased to over 1,100 from around 500 in May.
To be exact, 30,550 passengers traveled on the first day of domestic flight resumption on May 25 and 418 flight departures were witnessed. This has risen to a daily air passenger traffic of 1,20,725 passengers and  1,121 flight departures as of Sep 1.
