26 May 2020 Current Events Chaos Observed at Various Airports as Flights Takeoff After Two Months

After two months of a halt in operations due to COVID-19, passenger jets took off on Monday in the country. However, not many could resume operations amid the uncertainty of schedules and the reluctance shown by a few states to allow inbound travellers. Earlier, on Sunday, states agreed with the Centre to allow the graded reopening of the passenger flights by ensuring local measures to quarantine and isolate passengers to avoid an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases. But the Centre allowed only a third of domestic operations amid a national lockdown triggered by the pandemic. Complying with the public health rules, about 1,100 expected flights were cancelled by the airlines, leaving passengers stranded at the airport. Mismanagement and confusion were seen in the Delhi airport as well. As per an official, about 82 flights - departures and arrivals - were cancelled. Nearly 190 departures and arrivals were previously scheduled for the first day from Delhi. On the matter, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said, "All of us are struggling to get it (flights) going. There are multiple stakeholders and multiple obligations." As per experts, this chaos in operations will put off potential flyers due to lack of clarity on quarantine rules.
