The government has been gradually removing restrictions with the widening of vaccine coverage and lower risk of Coronavirus infections.
An airline executive said that there is substantial demand from flyers for food and reading materials on board.

With effect from October 18, 2021, the government has allowed complete restoration of pre-Covid airline capacity on domestic network.
The aviation ministry had reduced the permissible capacity deployment to 50% of pre-Covid levels in June this year in the wake of rising Covid cases. It subsequently increased the permitted capacity to 72.5% of pre-Covid capacity in August as cases showed a downward trend. It then further raised it to 85% with effect from September 18, 2021 as situation improved.
