UK-India flights resume, chaos at Delhi airport as govt modifies quarantine rule belatedly

Chaotic scenes were witnessed at the Delhi airport on Friday as many passengers arriving from the UK vociferously complained against the national capital government’s belated decision to make seven-day institutional quarantine compulsory for them irrespective of their COVID-19 test results.

Passenger flights resumed from the UK to India in limited numbers from Friday onwards after remaining suspended for 16 days due to the emergence of a new coronavirus variant in that country. Air India’s AI112 flight from London landed at the Delhi airport at around 10.30 AM.

It was the only UK flight to land in Delhi on Friday and it had 256 passengers in it, said Gauri Agarwal, founder of the Genestrings Diagnostic Centre, which is handling coronavirus testing of all passengers at the Delhi airport.
