India’s budget airline IndiGo on Friday issued an advisory for passengers travelling to Maharashtra from Delhi-NCR, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Goa. The airline has advised the travellers to carry negative RT-PCR report not older than 72 hours, starting November 25.
It also suggested that passengers without negative RT-PCR reports can undergo the test at the concerned airports at their own cost. “Effective 25th November, passengers travelling to Maharashtra from Delhi NCR, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Goa are encouraged to carry RT-PCR negative reports not older than 72 hours,” the advisory shared from its official Twitter handle read.
IndiGo has also published a state-wise requirement on its website. Aarogya setu App has already been made compulsory at several airports and passengers go through thermal screening before boarding their flight. The airline issued the advisory in the wake of rising cases of coronavirus in the several states, including Gujarat and Rajasthan.
Gujarat health department announced that the state has reported the highest single-day spike of 1,607 Covid-19 cases and 16 new fatalities, taking overall caseload and deaths to 2,05,116 and 3,938 respectively.
