Even as the Adampur airport is set to restart its services from May 25, there will be daily flights to Jaipur in addition to Delhi.

As per the schedule set by flight operator SpiceJet, the flights will take off from Jaipur at 7:20 am and reach Adampur at 8:50 am. Then, it will leave from Adampur at 9:10 am and reach Delhi at 10:25 am. It will again take off at 10:55 am from Delhi and reach Adampur at 12:10 pm. At 12:30 pm, the flight will take passengers from Adampur to Jaipur, culminating there at 2 pm.

Officials shared that the addition of Jaipur as a new destination was already a part of the Udaan Yojna and an approval for the same had been received in March. The plan to start and conclude the flights from Jaipur could not be implemented at that time as flights had got cancelled.

Deputy Commissioner Varinder K Sharma said: “All passengers reaching Adampur via flights will have to undergo 14-day home quarantine. Orders are the same for all inter-state travellers by bus or train and have been reiterated by the state government even today. For those coming from outside, institutional quarantine will have to be ensured.”

The officials added that all SOPs issued by Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Puri being updated from time to time with regards to conduct of domestic flights would have to be adhered. The list of dos and don’ts include having Aarogya Setu app on mobile phone before starting the flight, no ticket to those above 65 years of age and less than 10 years and no permission of eatables.

Even as the Centre has been directing all government and private companies to ensure installation of Aarogya Setu app in mobile phones of their employees for contact tracing, the same is not being checked with coronavirus patients visiting Civil Hospitals of the state.

“Instead, officials entrusted with the duty to trace contacts have been checking for Cova app. Punjab had introduced Cova app before Aarogya Setu app became functional. Hence, we continue to stress with the state-used app as of now,” said a senior administrative officer.
