According to the new directive, travellers would have to arrive at airports at least three hours before their flight time when commercial flights resume.
FAAN explained that the reason for early arrival at the airport is to ensure necessary checks and screening are done for the travellers before boarding for their flights.
The new directive is coming amidst plans to resume local commercial flights which had been suspended as a result of the covid-19 pandemic.
Although, flights were restricted during the heat of the Lockdown, however, only essential flights including those for medical and evacuation purposes, amongst others, were permitted by FAAN.
