Aviation Ministry on Monday passed an order to all airlines to not serve an in-flight meal on domestic flight if flight duration is less then two hours.

Aviation Ministry only allowed serving pre-packed meals if flight duration is more than 2 hours. There are no restrictions on inflight meals to passengers on international flights.

This decision comes after fears that passengers put off masks to eat may lead to the spread of the infection. The Ministry said that the latest protocals are set to come into effect from April 15.
