From the initial shock to re-starting services in a calibrated manner, the aviation industry has come a long way in dealing with COVID-19.
American carriers are getting their aircraft back from long-term parking as demand increases. India, though closed for international travel, has increased the limit for domestic flights from one-third to 45 percent of the total approved capacity.
The numbers are still low, but from 500-plus, airlines are operating over 700 daily flights in domestic sectors currently.
While the government has already extended the ban on international flights until mid-July, it has kept a window open to start limited flights to certain destinations.
