In response to the ‘Janata Curfew’ suggested by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, IndiGo and GoAir will curtail operations tomorrow.
While IndiGo will run 60% of its normal schedule, GoAir will suspend all flights.
Pitching for “social distancing”, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday called for a ‘Janta curfew’ from 7 AM to 9 PM on 22nd March amid a novel coronavirus pandemic.
“No passenger or express train will originate from any railway station in the country between Saturday/Sunday midnight to 10:00 pm on Sunday,” said an order issued by the Indian Railways.
Update: In India, 271 people have been reported to be infected, and four have died.
