Dhaka: Airlines in India are to resume inflight meal services on domestic flights following the latest order issued by the Ministry of Civil Aviation effective immediately.
Earlier in May, the provision of food on flights in the country was banned by the government as an effort to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
However, the order comes with various conditions, including only using disposable trays, cutlery and crockery, while airline crews are required to wear new sets of protective gloves before each meal or beverage service.
Inflight entertainment will also be made available on domestic flights with severe restrictions to prevent the spread of the virus.
India is among the worst countries in the world impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, with over 3.5 million cases confirmed to date and a death toll of more than 63,600.
