Covid impact: Air fares on domestic flights to be capped

Aarogya Setu App Mandatory for Airline Passengers No Entry Without'Green Status

The passengers have been asked to arrive at the airport 2 hours before the scheduled departure of their flights. They have also reported that airport authorities are in talks with cab aggregators on a "sticker system" to highlight vehicles that are ready and santised to ferry passengers from the airport.

Passengers will have to update their Aarogya Setu App status to declare they are free of any COVID-19 symptom.

Fresno Yosemite International Airport officials didn't comment about the flight Gonzalez was on, but said far fewer people than normal have flown to and from the airport over the past couple months.

Adding more flights that demand would usually justify means passengers will be spread more thinly throughout the planes, the sources said, allowing for social distancing measures to be implemented.

A passenger who recently flew with American Airlines claims she felt extremely "unsafe" and alleged her flight to Texas was nearly "completely full" - but American Airlines is now saying that wasn't exactly the case. This comes after domestic flights were announced to resume from May 25 by the Civil Aviation Ministry. 18pm: The Airports Authority of India (AAI) issued a standard operating procedure (SOP) to airport operators on Thursday for recommencement of domestic flights from May 25 onwards, saying Aarogya Setu app is not mandatory for children below 14 years of age.

As for passengers, those who are more vulnerable to contracting COVID-19, such as pregnant women, elderly persons, patients suffering from other severe health issues, have been advised against travelling.

The Civil Aviation Ministry has directed all air carriers to adhere to the lower and upper limits of fares prescribed by it during the period of COVID- 19 pandemic.

"As we have said previously, on flights through May 31, American will limit the number of passengers on each aircraft", a representative for the airline said in a statement shared with Fox News. Additionally, only one check-in bag will be allowed.

Airlines will not provide meals services for passengers, check-in bags will not be allowed inside the cabin, passengers will be required to wear a face a face mask for travel and need to reach the airport at least two hours before their flights.

Passengers will have to wear masks at all times.

Social distancing on airplanes has become a topic of debate as airlines look to revive passenger numbers while ensuring safety for both travellers and workers.
