What are Indian Airlines Doing for their Customers in Light of Covid-19?

With over 3.35 lakh globally confirmed cases, the novel coronavirus disease has been spreading like wildfire from one country to another. To curb the rapid progression of the disease and contain it, most governments across the world have implemented drastic measures like travel bans and the imposition of national lockdowns.

On Monday, 23rd March, 2020 the official number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 in India rose to 415. With this, the Central and State governments announced a lockdown of 75 districts across the country, where cases of the disease have been reported.

To strengthen the effectiveness of this lockdown, India had banned all its international flights for a week from 20th March (later extended to midnight, 31st March). In line with this, domestic air travel has also been banned, effective from Wednesday, 25th March till midnight of 31st March. This is the first time India has imposed a total ban on its air travel.

While these measures can aid to control the spread of Covid-19, they have also hindered the travel plans of millions.

Following is an elaboration on the measures being undertaken by various Indian airlines in the face of this travel ban imposition.
