Hyderabad: Two months after suspending air operations due to lockdown, the GMR Hyderabad International Airport Limited (GHIAL), which is operating Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA), will resume domestic operations from May 25 as per the instructions of the Central government.

The GHIAL here on Saturday announced that it would provide a safe and healthy environment with a robust contact-less boarding experience for passengers. Commercial operations of domestic and international flights were suspended from March 24.

A few days ago, the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) announced that domestic flight operations will recommence in a calibrated manner from May 25. As many as 550 flight movements including arrival and departures register at the RGIA every day.

Of them, 440 are domestic arrival and departures. “We will operate only 30 per cent of the total domestic flight operations from May 25,” an official said. Asked whether permission was taken from the State government, he said they were resuming operations as per directions of MoCA.

GHIAL CEO SGK Kishore said the RGIA was all set to commence its operations after a gap of almost two-months. “We are fully geared up to provide a safe and healthy environment for passengers while traveling through our airport,” he said.

Already equipped with fully paperless e-boarding facility since long, the RGIA will offer technology based contact-less boarding for flyers across all passenger touch points. It has undertaken robust deep-cleaning and sanitization across the terminal and passengers need not be in the least apprehensive, as safety is the priority.
