Number of flyers from Maharashtra to Indore reduced due to mandatory RT-PCR test on arrival

Indore airport marks a dip in the number of flyers reaching the city from Maharashtra in view of the mandatory COVID RT-RCR test on arrival, devised especially for them by the state. The administration announced this new travel protocol on the night of March 15 to eliminate the possibility of any infection rise due to increased travel from India's worst-hit state - Maharashtra.

While airport authorities made arrangements for self-paid coronavirus tests on March 16, a sharp 12% ridership decline was noted here by March 18. As per reports, seat occupancy has also fallen by 12%-15% in response to the compulsory COVID test.
