The Ministry of Civil Aviation has permitted the restoration of scheduled domestic air operations without any capacity restriction from 18th October.

The ministry of civil aviation (MoCA) increased the capacity of domestic flights to 65% from 50% in July.

For the first time after May 2020, the government cut down domestic airlines capacity from 80% (of the summer schedule 2020) to 50% from June 1 (in an order dated May 28) to safeguard airlines’ viability battling weak finances in the aftermath of the sudden spike in Covid-19 cases across the country, decrease in passenger traffic and passenger load factor.

The government had also increased the upper cap of airfare to go up by around 14% due to the rise in fuel prices.
