    Domestic flights reopen from May 25, 2020 in India

Though the lockdown 3.0 did end on the expected date, lockdown 4.0 kickstarted from May 18th, and the Central government was firm on their decision of not starting domestic flights immediately.

    Need to reschedule Air Asia flight booking? It’s a mess!

    Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the entire travel and tourism industry has taken a hit. So much so, a lot of airlines have stopped flying and numerous hotels have completely shut. While the Government has been doing all that they can to curb the virus, this has certainly hit the travel industry the most. In the 1st week of March, I decided to spend my birthday in Goa amidst the beauty of nature and lip-smacking food. I quickly browsed through various travel portals and finally, made my booking through Easemytrip.com at a discounted fare. I decided to fly with Air Asia considering their fly timings which are usually convenient. The…
