As the domestic flight operartion resumes from Monday, Union civil aviation minister Hardeep Singh Puri said there will be no 14-day quarantine for passengers.

"The quarantine issue will be dealt with in a pragmatic manner. We can't have 14 days quarantine. It is not practical," the aviation minister said.

"In case you test positive, then you will not even be permitted to enter the airport or board flights," Puri added while discussing the revised SOPs that flyers need to follow when flights start on May 25.

The Centre decided to start the domestic flight services from the next week after two months. India suspended the flight services in the last week of March when the nationwide lockdown was first imposed.

Travellers need to reach airport at least two hours before the scheduled departure. The state governments and administrations have to ensure public transport and private taxis for passengers and airline crew. The boarding for flight will commence 60 minutes before departure and boarding gate will be closed 20 minutes before departure.

Only flyers with confirmed web check-in will be allowed to enter an airport terminal. The civil aviation ministry added that there will be no physical check-in at counters. Passengers must compulsorily walk through a thermal screening zone before entering the airport terminal building. Masks and gloves are mandatory for all.

Just the asymptomatic will be permitted to travel. All the flyers must introduce Aarogya Setu application on their telephones with the exception of the youngsters underneath the age of 14 years. In the event that they don't show "green" on Aarogya Setu versatile application or don't have the administration contact following application, they won't be permitted in. Just one registration sack will be allowed and aircrafts won't give any supper benefits in flights. 

Flyers will be permitted into the terminal structure if their flights are inside four hours. Papers and magazines won't be given in the terminal structure/lounges. Streetcars won't be permitted in the appearance or flight segments, with the exception of unique cases.

On Wednesday, Puri said domestic operations would be re-started in a "calibrated" manner. "There will be a lower and upper limit of fares prescribed by the government during coronavirus pandemic period," the aviation ministry stated.
