I know you will say MHA lockdown is till May 31…nothing is written in stone…we are starting the domestic flights from May 25, we are prepared,” said Hardeep Singh Puri.

In a live chat with Mr. Puri on facebook, he stated that the pricing of tickets is a commercial matter which is in between the airline and customer so the government’s role is limited to issuing advisories.
