New Delhi: Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri on Saturday, April 18 said airlines are advised to open bookings only after the government takes a decision on starting domestic and international commercial passenger flight services.

“The Ministry of Civil Aviation clarifies that so far no decision has been taken to open domestic or international operations,” he wrote on Twitter.

“Airlines are advised to open their bookings only after a decision in this regard has been taken by the government,” Puri added.

Earlier in the day, Air India said it has opened bookings on select domestic flights from May 4 and on select international flights from June 1.
