Now food will not be served during domestic air travel.
The Civil Aviation Ministry decided last year not to give food in flights even during the first wave of corona virus. Later, the decision was withdrawn when there was a shortage in the cases of Kovid-19. Now, in the last two weeks, the number of air passengers has come down drastically in the growing cases of corona.
The Civil Aviation Ministry had also taken such a decision during the first wave of Corona virus last year. However, the decision was later withdrawn when the data for corona virus positive cases decreased. In the last two weeks, the number of air passengers has come down drastically in the growing cases of Kovid-19. Even after this, the ministry has decided not to give food during air travel to protect people from the corona virus. Let us know that on Sunday, more than 1.70 lakh new cases of corona were registered, which is the record so far.

Ministry has given these reasons for strictness
The Ministry of Aviation has cited increasing cases of corona and the mutation of Kovid-19 virus in UK, South Africa and Brazil mutants to India for this decision. The order states, “There is strong evidence that these new mutants of Kovid-19 virus are more susceptible to infection.” For this reason, the rules of eating and eating in airplanes have been changed. The new rules will be implemented from April 15. The Ministry has asked all airlines that air travelers should be fully informed about these new rules implemented during the journey.
