Naman Kumar, a student of Lovely Professional University (LPU), was happy to fly back to his native place Patna as the domestic flights resumed on Monday after a gap of two months.
A majority of the flyers at Sri Guru Ram Dass Jee International Airport here were students, stranded here ever since the lockdown was imposed.
Naman was among 39 passengers who boarded the flight to Patna. In another flight to Delhi, 31 passengers flew back. Three more flights took off from here.
Two flights arrived from Jaipur and Delhi with 16 and 25 passengers, respectively. In the evening, three more flights landed — two from Delhi and one from Patna.
Two flights from Mumbai were cancelled due to operational reasons.
The airport authorities introduced touch-free procedure right from the arrival of passengers to boarding the flight. The passengers did not come in contact with any airport employee. There were required to web check-in and instal Aarogya Setu app.
Manoj Chansoria, airport director, said: “Domestic flights resumed in calibrated manner. The touch-free approach has been adopted to mitigate the spread of Covid. Distance markers have been drawn at the entrance to the airport and inside.”
