Centre overturns Delhi government's order, says domestic flights at IGI airport to continue
| Monday | 23rd March, 2020
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Sunday overturned Delhi government's order that suspended operations of domestic flights at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport.
“All domestic/international flights arriving in Delhi during this period shall be suspended,” the state government's order that was announced at around 6:30 PM on Sunday said.
However, shortly afterwards, the spokesperson for the Central Civil Aviation Ministry informed that the airport will continue to operate.
“Domestic flights to and from IGI Airport, Delhi shall continue to operate and the airport shall remain functional,” the spokesperson said.
As per reports, civil aviation is a Central subject and therefore the DGCA had the power to deem Delhi government's order as null.
