CHENNAI: In what sounds like a solace for the stressed air travellers, the State government has agreed to provide transit passengers with paid accommodation, and they need not be quarantined, according to sources from Chennai Airport. Officials, while speaking to Express, said that the decision to this effect was taken after having discussions with State government authorities and the airlines.

The inbound and outbound flight services are likely to be reduced on Thursday, with a total of 38 flights scheduled. This is way less when compared to 44 flights being scheduled on Wednesday. The Airport Authority of India said that on Wednesday, even the flight services to Varanasi resumed.
