In the wake of the second wave of the pandemic, several industries have been affected and its impact on the aviation sector is no different. As the numbers of cases continue to increase, the number of people travelling is on a steady decline, causing a number of sectors to temporarily shut operations.

According to sources, from May 17, 2021 onwards, terminal T2  in New Delhi will shut down and all the flights will be handled at the T3 terminal. The Delhi airport's decision has come at a time when India and its aviation sector has been badly hit by the second wave of the pandemic. Similarly, international air traffic has also been affected by the second wave of the pandemic.
