Bengal has written to the Centre, asking that incoming flights from 8 cities, where coronavirus is raging, be stopped from July 6. The list includes Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur, Chennai, Indore, Ahmedabad and Surat, sources said.
All flights from eight “high-prevalence cities” should be stopped, Bengal has said in its letter to the Civil Aviation Ministry. Flights from other places should be cut down to one a week for each airline.
Flights should be limited to all three airports in the state — Kolkata, Andal and Bagdogra.
