NEW DELHI: Two months after no flight operations in India, domestic passenger flights resumed today with a reduced number.

Passengers queued up outside airports to catch early morning flights back home.

Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri on Monday morning tweeted saying: “Today, we restart domestic flights.” He added that India’s civil aviation is on the forefront.

However, many passengers waiting for their flights in Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad and other airports said their flights were cancelled without prior notice.

It should be noted that some 80 flights flying in and out of the Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport were cancelled on Monday — the resumption of the first day of flight operations.

On Monday, some 5 flights arrived at Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International airport. A total of 17 flights departed and 9 flights were cancelled.

Likewise, the first flight from Lucknow took off for Ahmedabad in the morning. (With inputs from Agencies)
