New Delhi, Agencies. The government is serious about normalizing international flights as soon as possible after the continuous decrease in corona cases and the recognition of India’s vaccine by many countries in the world. Civil Aviation Secretary Rajiv Bansal said that international flights are expected to return to normal from next month. Necessary preparations are being made to increase the crowd in large numbers at the airport.
According to the data of the Ministry of Civil Aviation, domestic flights are now completely normal and on an average about four lakh journeys are being done daily. International flights are currently operating only as an air bubble with mutual agreement. A reduction in airfares can also be expected after the resumption of normal flights. Along with this, the increase in the number of flights will also give relief to the passengers. Bansal said that in view of the increasing number of passengers, we have decided to increase the facilities at the airport. The services of private sector security personnel are also being considered at relatively small airports. This will also help in reducing the cost of the airport.
Bansal further said that the Ministry of Civil Aviation has demanded from the Ministry of Home Affairs for the airports and security personnel of the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF). Gradually 3000 additional CISF personnel will be provided. It is also proposed to deploy private security agencies at airports for non-core functions.
Last week, Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia had said that the government was evaluating the process of normalizing international operations. The government wants to return to normalcy keeping in mind the situation of corona virus epidemic in some parts of the world.
