States across the country will resume domestic flight services on Monday except Andhra Pradesh and West Bengal, said Union Minister for Civil Aviation Hardeep Singh Puri.

Airports in Andhra Pradesh will resume services on Tuesday, May 26, and West Bengal will restart on Thursday, May 28.

Earlier on Sunday evening, IANS had reported on the delayed resumption of flight services in West Bengal and Andhra Pradesh.

“It has been a long day of hard negotiations with various state govts to recommence civil aviation operations in the country. Except Andhra Pradesh which will start on 26/5 & West Bengal on 28/5, domestic flights will recommence across the country from tomorrow,” Puri tweeted.

For Tamil Nadu, he said that there will be a maximum of 25 daily arrivals in Chennai, but there would be no limit on the number of departures.

“As per the request of state govt, operations in Andhra Pradesh will recommence on a limited scale from 26 May. For Tamil Nadu, there will be max 25 arrivals in Chennai but there’s no limit on the number of departures. For other airports in TN, flights will operate as in other parts of the country,” Puri said.
