International Flight: If reports are to be believed, the Union Ministry of Civil Aviation is likely to announce resumption of international flights from mid-August. The Centre has come under tremendous pressure as a number of private airlines are pressuring the ministry to resume international fights because of the loss of revenue due to the coronavirus lockdown.
Apart from this, the Centre might also increase the numbers of flights on several domestic routes, from 50 percent to at least 60-70 percent capacity.
To make all things clear, Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri will address the media at 2:30 PM on Thursday and will make several major announcements with regard to international flight resumption.
