Domestic passenger flights will restart on May 25, 2020. Bookings for these flights are now open. Here is how to book these tickets and how much would they cost.
The new SOP for air travel has been notified, which will allow for travel by planes across India on May 25, 2020, and onwards. Here is how much things have changed for the next time you will get on board an aircraft.
IndiGo, India’s largest airline by fleet and market share, has made it compulsory for their pilots to share data with the Indian Met Department to help the accurate prediction going forward. Aviation’s supply of data to the weatherman had stopped after the grounding of planes in March 2020.
Aditya Ghosh, Sanjiv Kapoor and Rahul Taneja, on one panel. For a fun conversation which covered some of their challenges at their airlines and how things are working out for them after their aviation stints.
In spite of strict instructions from the government that no airline should accept bookings till further notice, airlines operating in India continue to accept bookings for the days ahead. Here is a list of the airlines complying with the rules and the ones which are not (which is most of them)
All the airlines operating inside India, as well as operating flights to India, have been told to stop the sale of flights to/from/within India till further notice, to make sure that the airlines won’t be able to take new reservations for the time being.
The time to EFFECTIVELY regulate the airlines is now, but unfortunately, they are getting a free hand at doing a lot of things which they should not be doing at the moment. Consumer protection is not how it should have been during the times of CoVid-19.
Airlines have been very kind to us offering a “credit shell” while they should have kindly returned our cash when they ended up in the CoVid-19 Soup. But these credit shells are flawed and have many issues, so take a look at these issues before you accept them.
Time for the same thing to go round and round. Airlines have opened booking for flights from May 4, 2020 onwards, however, our advice remains the same. Don’t book a flight ticket at the moment if you don’t have to. You never know if this flight is going to take off or not.
As we all prepare to stay at home for another three weeks, give or take, don’t expect to fly anywhere anytime soon. No commercial flights will operate till May 3, 2020, for the moment.
