Vihaan Sharma: Five-year-old boy flies alone from Delhi to Bengaluru
New Delhi : Soon after the flight services resumed for domestic travel, a five-year-old boy was one of the few passengers who travelled alone from Delhi to Bengaluru where his mom received him at the Kempegowda International Airport.
Vihaan Sharma boarded the flight from Delhi to meet his mother after three months.
“My five-yr-old son Vihaan Sharma has travelled alone from Delhi, he has come back to Bengaluru after three months,” his mother was quoted as saying by the news agency ANI.
The Karnataka government has issued guidelines that the passengers coming from high Covid-19 prevalent states - Maharashtra, Gujarat, Delhi, Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh – will have to mandatorily go under quarantine for a period of seven days.
However, home quarantine is allowed for pregnant women, children below the age of 10 years, senior citizens of 80 years and above and terminally ill patients along with one attendant after their test result is negative.
In an effort to protect passengers and staff from the risk of COVID-19 transmission, Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) that operates the city airport has introduced a Parking-to-Boarding contactless journey.
