Amritsar, May 24

The city airport will restore six flights to four cities including Delhi, Mumbai Jaipur and Patna from Monday.

“Amritsar expects to receive six flights daily with one additional on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday,” said Manoj Chansoria, director, Shri Guru Ram Das Jee International Airport, Amritsar.

Airport authorities claimed that all arrangements have been made for the restoration of domestic flights. A ‘touch-free’ system was evolved by the authorities at the airport. The passengers will not come in contact with any airport employee. There will be web check-ins and passengers have to install Arogya setu app, launched by the government of India.

“Passengers departing are required to do web check-ins and download Arogya Setu App. They have to wear masks at all time. Social distancing markings and touch-less entry procedures are being followed at the airport. Departing passengers will be subject to thermal screening and only those with normal temperature shall be allowed inside. All passengers arriving have to follow health advisory and instructions of the state administration,” Chansoria said.

The airport authorities received detailed instructions from the government about the arrangement. The airport director claimed that from departure gate to boarding area, all arrangements were made for social distancing. Secondly, luggage would be sanitised to disinfect. Passengers would be asked to sanitise their hands at various spots.

Travel guidelines

  1. The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has issued guidelines for domestic travel. All passengers will be advised to download Arogya Setu app on their mobile devices.
  2. During boarding and travel, all passengers will use face mask. They will also follow hand hygiene, respiratory hygiene and maintain environmental hygiene.
  3. Asymptomatic passengers will be permitted to go with the advice that they shall self-monitor their health for 14 days. In case they develop any symptom, they have to inform the district surveillance officer.
  4. Those found symptomatic will be isolated and taken to the nearest health facility.

Trains Back on track from June 1

People have started coming to reservation counters inside the railway station to book seats after the government announced to run certain trains from June 1. Vivek Kumar, Divisional Railway Manager (Ferozepur zone), said several trains would be operated from June 1. He said these trains would be different from the Shramik train being run to facilitate transportation of migrants. The DRM said all safety norms in the wake of novel coronavirus would be maintained at the railway station and on board. However, limited number of people was approaching the reservation centres to book berths due to the panic of the virus. — Neeraj Bagga
