NOIDA/GHAZIABAD: With domestic flights set to resume services from May 25, those travelling between the Delhi airport and Noida or Ghaziabad will just need to show their confirmed tickets to enter or exit the two UP cities.
Late on Friday evening, the Noida and Ghaziabad administrations said those travelling to railway stations, too would not be stopped at the borders if they have copies of confirmed train tickets.
“The government of India has decided to start operations of domestic flights from May 25, 2020, and trains from June 1, 2020, for which, online ticketing is being done. Hence, all the cops on duty should ensure that those possessing confirmed air tickets/railway e-tickets, be allowed to travel to the airport or railway station. For this, they would not require any pass,” the order by the Noida administration reads.
Though the order does not mention anything about those who have to enter Noida from the IGI airport or Delhi railway station, a spokesperson for Noida police said the same rule would apply both ways. “People travelling back from the airport or station would not any pass if they have confirmed tickets,” the spokesperson said.
Earlier in the day, Noida DM Suhas LY said, “Just as with railways, we will allow movement to and from the airport based of confirmed tickets and boarding passes. One person can be allowed to pick and drop the travellers.”
Officials, however, said they would wait for the UP government’s directives on whether those travelling from the airport would have to stay in mandatory home quarantine for 14 days — a move the Gurgaon administration has announced.
The Ghaziabad administration, too, has relaxed restrictions on movement through the borders. “Commuters in both private and commercial vehicles can now travel to Delhi and Noida. The only restriction is that three passengers, including the driver, would be allowed in each,” said Ajay Shankar Pandey, the Ghaziabad DM.
“As far as travelling to the airport is concerned, passengers will be required to produce flight tickets at the border,” he added.
