The Ministry of Civil Aviation today allowed airlines to fly on domestic routes at full capacity. The move will go into effect on 18th October and coincide with a season of festivals in India.
Last week, India announced a phased resumption of tourist visas for foreigners. Those arriving on charters flights will be given tourist visas from 15th October and others arriving on non-charter flights can get tourist visas from 15th November.
This decision by the Ministry of Home Affairs is also expected to pave the way for a resumption of regular, scheduled flights and boost seat use of domestic flights.
