India asks airlines not to open bookings

New Delhi: India’s Civil Aviation Ministry has asked airlines to take ticket bookings only after a final decision on lifting or easing restrictions on domestic and international flights are announced.

“The Ministry of Civil Aviation clarifies that so far no decision has been taken to open domestic or international operations. Airlines are advised to open their bookings only after a decision in this regard has been taken by the Government,” India’s Union Minister for Civil Aviation Hardeep Singh Puri said in a tweet.

The tweet was posted on Saturday night after Air India on its website said that it is taking bookings for travel from May 4 on some domestic routes and from June 1 for international routes.
