Earlier the same day, the Government agreed with the Ministry of Transport’s proposal to resume domestic air routes on a trial basis from October 10 to 20, in an effort to get transport and tourism services back on track.
The Ministry of Transport has laid down guidelines for resuming domestic air routes. For the time being, passengers are public affairs servants, COVID-19 frontline forces, experts, business executives and several others.
Passengers must receive two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, with the second dose given at least 14 days apart. Vaccination is evidenced by a green card on the E-health record book / PC-COVID app or a vaccination certificate. They must also have a negative COVID-19 test at least 72 hours before departure.
Those who show symptoms of a cough, a fever, shortness of breath, muscle pain or a sore throat are now allowed to board the plane.
Among other conditions, passengers are required to wear a face mask, disinfect their hands, and limit contact during the flight. From the arriving airport to their home, passengers are required to strictly follow COVID-19 guidelines, turn on the PC-COVID tracking app, limit stops, and not attend large gatherings.
