Flying regulations have been relaxed, and air operations will be more efficient in the future

The Ministry of Civil Aviation has decided to let go of some of the COVID-19 related flying regulations and guidelines

The Ministry of Civil Aviation has decided to let go of some of the COVID-19 related flying regulations and guidelines. This came into the picture as the airline industry operations in India slowly moved back to the pre-pandemic times. The earlier rule for medical emergencies to keep three vacant seats on international flights has been discarded by the Ministry of Civil Aviation.

The pat-down searches of passengers by security personnel at airports are to be resumed as decided by the Ministry. Also, it is not mandatory for the cabin crew members to wear PPE kits any longer.

Deeply impacted by the pandemic, and particularly by the Omicron variant of the virus, the country’s aviation industry finally saw a 20% increase in passenger travel by air in February. In comparison to January 2022, there was a difference of 76.96 lakh domestic passengers.

To resume smooth air operations in the country, the Ministry of Civil Aviation has taken the decision to relax these flying rules. From March 27, 2022, scheduled international flight operations will resume positively.

The Ministry acclaimed, “To handle any respiratory infections related to cases on-air, airlines may carry some additional PPE protective gear, sanitizer and N-95 masks for the crew members as well as the passengers.”

However, it is still mandatory to wear face masks and use sanitizers for hand hygiene. Security personnel who are going to do the pat-down searches are required to wear N-95 masks and use hand sanitizers after each pat-down.
