The Tamil Nadu government has extended the state-wide lockdown till 31st March. According to the order, the district administration will take strict measures to enforce the lockdown to manage the spread of Covid-19. The government has also listed out advisories issued by the Centre.
Chennai to Mumbai is the third busiest route for Chennai. As per the new quarantine rules, Maharashtra’s travellers are required to undergo isolation for 7 days. Given this rule, the leisure and business traffic between Chennai and Mumbai may affect adversely.
Tamil Nadu announced that passengers coming from Mumbai would have to home quarantine for 7 days. Similarly, those arriving in Karnataka, West Bengal, and Delhi must provide Covid-19 negative certificates. Going by the current rules and regulations in different Indian states, a fall in passengers’ number is very likely. Those travelling to see the places to visit in Chennai might not consider flying to the city now because of the quarantine rules.
However, no large scale air ticket cancellation has been recorded yet. Around 12 flights operate in the Mumbai-Chennai-Mumbai sector. It is one of the high-revenue earning sectors for Indian airlines. The Chennai-Mumbai route is one of the top routes as many international travellers fly via Mumbai.
A travel industry person has said that the quarantine rules will affect the travel sector as fear among transit passengers grow. There is no restriction for transit passengers to fly via Chennai, but many of those who fly via Mumbai to abroad are asking airlines to shift their ticket from Mumbai to Delhi to avoid Mumbai travel. Passengers returning to India also have started to enter the country via Delhi. The trend has led to a reduction in fare from Mumbai to international destinations as the demand dips.
However, it might be the case that this is just an initial reaction to the states putting quarantine restrictions on Maharashtra. The concern may fade out soon, even amid Covid travel.
