DGCA allows domestic carriers to operate at 65% capacity – Times of India


    NEW DELHI: The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Monday allowed domestic passenger flights to operate at 65 per cent with immediate effect.
    The government had to cut back on airline capacity in May amidst an unprecedented rise in Covid cases in the country.
    In view of the second Covid wave in India, decrease in passenger traffic and load factor, the capacity was capped at 50 per cent, instead of 80 per cent that was allowed earlier.
    This cap has now been increased to 65 per cent with effect from July 5.
    The order shall remain in force till July 31 or until further orders, whichever is earlier.
