Jalandhar, May 25
Contrary to the announcement made on Saturday, air services from the Adampur airport remained suspended here on Monday. The only Delhi-bound flight from the region was scheduled to resume today after its suspension over the past two months ago due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
As the official confirmation of the discontinuation of the domestic flight could not be received, a passenger who was to arrive here from Delhi informed that there were only six passengers for Adampur from Delhi in the 90-seater SpiceJet flight. Apart from Delhi, the Jaipur-bound flight also remained suspended. The flight is likely to resume from Tuesday, an official on condition of anonymity said.
As per the schedule set by flight operator SpiceJet, the flights were planned to take off from Jaipur at 7.20 am and reach Adampur at 8.50 am. Then, it would leave Adampur at 9.10 am and reach Delhi at 10.25 am. It would again take off at 10.55 am from Delhi and reach Adampur at 12.10 pm. At 12.30 pm, the flight would take passengers from Adampur to Jaipur, culminating there at 2 pm.
Meanwhile, Jalandhar Deputy Commissioner Varinder Kumar Sharma said every passenger arriving at the Adampur airport via domestic flights would be tested for Covid by the reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test at the airport itself.
“After the test, passengers would be allowed to go home and their name, address, mobile numbers and other details would be penned down by the authorities here. If any passenger tests positive, then he would be shifted to the government isolation ward, as per health protocols. However, if tested negative, the passengers would be kept in home quarantine for 14 days. Such passengers would self-monitor their health status and would report to nearest government health facility in case of development of any symptoms of Covid,” said Sharma.
He added that as many as 3,000 persons stranded in other states were expected to return to the district. In this regard, all officers concerned had been directed to ensure a meticulous implementation of the directions of the state government.
