After Air India Opens Bookings, Centre Says No Decision On Flight Ops Yet

Coronavirus: Air India said it has opened bookings for travel from May 4 on some domestic routes

New Delhi:

The government on Saturday said no decision has been taken to allow domestic or international flights, hours after Air India on its website said it is taking bookings for travel from May 4 on some domestic routes and from June 1 for international routes.

"The Ministry of Civil Aviation clarifies that so far no decision has been taken to open domestic or international operations. Airlines are advised to open their bookings only after a decision in this regard has been taken by the Government," Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri tweeted.

Earlier, state-run carrier Air India said it is, however, not taking any booking for domestic flights for travel till May 3, or the day the extended lockdown over the COVID-19 pandemic is scheduled to end. Air India has also stopped taking bookings for international flights till May 31.

"The situation is being constantly reviewed and we shall keep you updated," Air India said on its website.

The airline has been sending its planes for cargo duties across the country and on international routes, such as to destinations in China, from where the novel coronavirus outbreak started in December and eventually turned into a pandemic.

An Air India B-787 aircraft left for China's Guangzhou from Delhi on Friday morning to pick up medical supplies, news agency ANI reported. On Wednesday, the airline said it carried 170 tonnes of COVID-19 related medical cargo from Shanghai and Hong Kong in one day.

"In the light of the ongoing global health concerns, we have currently stopped accepting bookings on all domestic flights for travel till May 3, 2020, and on all international flights for travel till May 31, 2020," Air India said on Saturday.

"Bookings for select domestic flights for travel from May 4, 2020, and for international flights for travel from June 1, 2020 onwards are open," it said.

The country has been under a lockdown since March 25 to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. The first phase of the lockdown was from March 25 to April 14. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on April 14 extended it till May 3.

All domestic and international flights except cargo carriers have been grounded.

According to the Civil Aviation Ministry, "Lifeline Udan" flights are being operated to transport essential medical cargo to remote parts of the country.

"227 flights have been operated by Air India, Alliance Air Indian Air Force (IAF) and private carriers (138 by Air India and Alliance Air). 407.40 tons Cargo transported till now," the ministry tweeted earlier this week.

These flights are being operated adhering to safety protocols laid down by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation or DGCA.
