Nearly two months after coronavirus induced lockdown across the country, domestic flight operations resumed in Andhra Pradesh today. People at the airport were seen maintaining social distancing. While thermal screening of passengers was also being done by authorities. The first SpiceJet plane from Bengaluru landed at Vijayawada airport with 79 passengers at 7.30 am. All passengers, on arrival, were sent on special buses for home quarantine.
Meanwhile, the flight returned to Bangalore at around 8.30 am. Passengers returning to Bangalore were allowed only after sanitisation and thermal screening.
As Bengaluru is a non-high sensitive area (as far as COVID-19 cases are concerned), the passengers who landed here were advised home quarantine for seven days. In case of high- sensitive areas the passengers will have to undergo either institutional quarantine or paid quarantine.
