Government of India yesterday announced that it has allowed airlines to serve food on all domestic flights.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, domestic airlines have stopped serving meals on flights that have a duration of less than two hours.

Aviation ministry’s order said, "The airlines, operating flights on domestic sectors may provide meal services onboard, without restriction on duration of the flight,"

The ministry has also allowed the resumption of magazines and reading material for passengers on domestic flights.

The decision to restart food and magazines has been taken as the "COVID caseload" has reduced due to "proper implementation of appropriate COVID behavior protocols", it said.

When scheduled domestic flight services were resumed on May 25 last year following the lockdown imposed to contain the spread of coronavirus, the ministry allowed airlines to serve in-flight meals under certain conditions.

In this context, Vistara is the first airline to introduce inflight meals in cabins on its domestic network.

Indian government is also in a mood to resume regular international flights from January 2022, which has also led to a boom in the tourism sector which has been decimated by the coronavirus pandemic.
