This bit of news should come as a relief for Indian air passengers whose tickets were cancelled after a worldwide lockdown was imposed due to the novel Coronavirus. According to the news reports, the Director-General of Civil Aviation told the Supreme Court on Sunday, September 6 that all flight tickets booked by passengers in domestic and international airlines for travel between March 25 to May 3 this year will be ‘fully refunded’. The authorities have asked the passengers to apply for reimbursements within the next 15 days. Moreover, passengers are allowed to use the credit shell until March 31, 2021.
