Now along with booking air tickets, an e-copy of the Kovid protocol will be sent to the passengers by the airlines. Which will be very important to follow.

DGCA guidelines issued

On March 13, the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) issued this order to all airlines. The Kovid protocol sent by the airline will have to be followed during arrival, departure and travel.

The DGCA says that if any negligence is found in wearing the mask inside the aircraft or the mask is not worn properly, if the other guidelines of Corona are not followed, then it will be removed from the aircraft.

It will be necessary to wear a mask at all times

It has been clearly stated in the new order that it will be mandatory to wear a mask from the time of entry into the airport, during the journey and till the exit from the airport.

The nose and mouth should be completely covered with the mask. CISF and other police personnel will be deployed for its checking. If a passenger violates the protocol despite repeated warnings, the passenger will be treated as an ‘Unruly Passenger’.

Passenger will be put on No Fly List

In another order that came a few days ago, the DGCA had said that air travelers who do not wear face masks during the flight will be put on the ‘no fly list’ for onward journeys.

That is, passengers will not be able to travel in the plane. If one airline does this, then other airlines will also put that passenger on the no-fly list.

Delhi High Court had ordered 

This order of DGCA has come after the Delhi High Court’s order dated 8 March 2021. Actually, Justice C Hari Shankar was coming from Kolkata to Delhi on an Air India flight on March 5. During this, he found that social distancing is not being followed inside the flight and at the airport.

Passengers are not wearing masks, and airlines are also lax about the Kovid protocol. The Delhi High Court had then ordered that the Kovid protocol should be followed properly during the journey.
