Don't Begin Flights Till May 31: Tamil Nadu To Centre Over Virus Spurt
New Delhi: Tamil Nadu has asked the central government not to restart flights in the state until May 31 on account of a spurt in coronavirus cases.
Flights are to resume from Monday, but Tamil Nadu has asked the civil aviation ministry to defer the move because of rising COVID-19 cases in Chennai.
Flights will initially operate from metros, including Chennai.
Tamil Nadu said besides the virus worries, Chennai also does not have enough public transport because of the lockdown.
