Air India clarifies that flight bookings are currently closed, to resume after receipt of directions from Centre; says it will not resume domestic flights as some media reports suggested
Guwahati: Air India on Sunday clarified that flight bookings are currently close and will resume after receipt of directions from the Centre.
This comes after several reports that Air India will operate special domestic flights from different cities between May 19 and June 2, as a part of the second phase of evacuation.
In the clarification on the resumption of domestic flights, it said, "There is an internal Air India email circulating on WhatsApp. The contents of this mail have been misunderstood and are being misrepresented in various media reports. Commencement of Commercial Domestic/International flights is not in the purview of Air India."
It further said that passengers are requested to follow Ministry of Civil Aviation and Air India Twitter handles for an official announcement regarding the resumption of flight operations.
