In June, the capacity was raised to 45 percent from an initial 33 percent.

In order, the Ministry of Civil Aviation on Wednesday increased the capacity limit.

It said that the partial modification of the earlier order has been undertaken after a review of the current status of scheduled domestic operations vis-a-vis passenger demand for air travel.

Passenger air services were suspended on March 25 due to the nationwide lockdown to check the spread of Covid-19, though domestic air services resumed in a phased manner from May 25. (IANS)
