Ministry of Civil Aviation permitted domestic flights to fly at full capacity, October 18 onwards. It added that airlines and airport authorities would have to strictly adhere to COVID-19 protocols applicable for air travel.  The order stated that the decision was taken after taking into consideration the recent demand for air travel. 

Air travel was allowed to resume after a two-month grounding meant to curb the spread of COVID-19 in 2020. Airlines were allowed to operate at 33 per cent capacity post-resumption. In December, the ceiling was gradually spiked to 80 per cent. In September this year, it was peaked to 85 per cent. 

In a separate announcement, the ministry informed that a total of 2,307 flights operated in India on October 11. It ferried a total of 2,65,905 passengers.
