Highlighting the need to resume operations in the aviation sector, Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri on May 21 said the decision was taken keeping in mind the need to ensure the stakeholders of the sector are able to bounce back from the COVID-19 setback.

"While it was very important and essential to have coronavirus-enforced lockdown, it is equally important to open up, considering the balance between life and livelihood," he said at a press meet.
