New Delhi: As Republic Day is just over a week ago, airspace restrictions have been imposed in the national capital area as the preparations for the celebrations are taking the stage, PTI reported.
From January 29 to 24 and on 26 and 29, the curb will be alive in the region.
The daily restrictions from January 19th, Thursday to 24th, will be from 1000 hours to 1315 hours. During this period, non-scheduled flights of scheduled airlines and chartered flights will not be allowed to take off or land at the Delhi airport, according to a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM).
However, scheduled flights will not be impacted during the said period.
But on Republic Day, January 26, no flights will be allowed to take off or land from 0830 hours to 1300 hours and from 1500 hours to 1800 hours. Also, no landing or take-off of flights will be permitted at the Delhi airport from 1500 hours to 1900 hours on January 29, the day of the Beating the Retreat ceremony.
However, NOTAM will not affect IAF, BSF, or Army aviation helicopter operations, as well as state-owned aircraft/helicopters that are flying with the Governor/Chief Minister of a state.
Tata group’s Air India informed last that it will be cancelling some domestic flights and rescheduling certain international flights due to airspace restrictions in the national capital this month.
Generally, a NOTAM is a notice with information that is essential to personnel involved in flight operations.
