Director General of Civil Aviation, DGCA has asked airlines and airport operators to take social distancing measures to prevent spread of COVID-19.
Releasing guidelines on social distancing, the aviation regulator said, adequate spacing at check-in counters between passengers must be ensured. Availability of adequate staff for guiding the passengers at check-in counters and during security checks must also be ensured.
DGCA said passengers must sit at adequate distance in waiting area, keeping one seat vacant. Boarding should be done in a manner to avoid bunching of passengers at any time. Sanitisers for staff and passengers at the entry of aircraft must be provided. Cabin crew should maintain distance while serving the passengers.
Seat allocation at the time of check in should be done in a manner to ensure that seat between two passengers is kept empty. DGCA has asked airports to ensure adequate check in counters and security check counters to avoid congestion of passengers.
