An IndiGo passenger flying from Chennai to Coimbatore on 25th May has been confirmed positive for COVID-19.
The flight crew are to be quarantined for two weeks, while the passengers onboard are being notified.
The case, which happened on the day domestic flights resumed, highlights the potential dangers of flying.
In a statement, IndiGo has said the flight crew is in isolation for 14 days and the other passengers are being notified of the case. Flight crews are at a high risk of contracting the virus due to contact with hundreds of people. All passengers on domestic flights to Tamil Nadu are subject to a 14-day home quarantine if asymptomatic and a government-run one if found to have symptoms at the airport.
