India will resume domestic flights operations starting May 25, 2020— two months after the operations were halted in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The Ministry of Civil Aviation issued a list of guidelines Thursday for air travel amid the Covid-19 lockdown that includes mandatory use of Aarogya Setu app, face masks, web check-in, thermal screening near entry gate and more.
You can use online ticketing services to book a flight ticket for your journey. We are listing down apps and services that allow users to book flight ticket:
