Picture this itinerary!
Reema has to fly to Delhi. She has flown before but is doing so for the first time after eight months of the Covid pandemic striking in. She is a student in Osmania University and resides at Banjara Hills in Hyderabad. Her family had advised her not to travel even after the resumption of domestic air services. They were obviously scared for her. But now seeing the passengers flying in and out daily, she has mustered enough strength and wants to visit her home in Delhi.
She has parents and two older brothers waiting in Delhi to meet her. Her parents have given her enough of sermons on keeping herself safe. Her brothers wanted to come and pick her up. But a strong person that she is, Reema won them over.
So a decisive Reema takes the plunge and has to catch the flight today. She looked anxious. She has checked with airlines and found out that the flight is on time. She was advised to come with a printed copy of the boarding card and make a declaration on the airline website regarding her health status.
Reema carried a smart phone, she did the web check-in 48 hours before the departure date and booked a seat as well. Knowing that Hyderabad Airport has e-boarding facility she had taken a digital copy of the boarding card on her smart phone. However, as per the government advisory, she took a print of the bag tag, which she pasted on her check-in luggage. She also reconfirmed with her airlines, regarding weight and dimensions of the check in baggage and hand bag. Most of the regulations remain unchanged. She checked all these once again and prepared herself for the journey.
