    Coronavirus LIVE Updates | EU extends 'ghost flight' slot rule for Covid-hit airlines

    Brussels said Monday it had extended rules aimed at avoiding "ghost flights" by carriers trying to keep airport slots as they struggle to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.  "As the aviation industry begins to recover from the impact of the Covid-19 crisis, the European Commission remains determined to maintain the relaxation of ordinary slot allocation rules for airlines," a statement said. "The relief will therefore be extended to the next winter planning season, which runs from October 31, 2021 to March 27, 2022." The regulation lowers the requirement for airlines to fly at least 80 percent of the time to hold on to highly-prized take-off and landing slots at airports to 50 percent. The rules were relaxed last year with the aim of cutting down on the number of empty or near-empty "ghost flights" as airlines carried on flying despite steep drops in passenger numbers. Initially Brussels gave the carriers a complete waiver for maintaining slots but then hiked the required quota of flights back up to 50 percent ahead of this year's summer season.

    Coronavirus LIVE Updates | Delhi govt grants Covid relief of Rs 5,000 to nearly 48,000 construction workers

    The Delhi government granted Covid-relief of Rs 5,000 each to 47,996 construction workers on Monday. The office of Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said, in a statement, the Delhi Building and Other Construction Workers Welfare Board has been directed to disburse the relief amount to workers whose applications were approved between May 28 and July 18. "This ex gratia payment is for construction workers whose applications were approved between 28.05.2021 to 18.07.2021. This relief comes as an additional benefit for construction workers who were hit hardest because of the Covid crisis in Delhi," it said. The Delhi government had disbursed the same relief amount to 2,16,602 construction workers in April this year. Sisodia, also the Labour Minister, urged all construction workers to get registered with the workers board to avail the benefits of welfare schemes of the government. "Earlier workers had to stand in long queues for hours to submit their application but now, the entire process has been shifted online which helps the workers to quickly apply on the government website and not miss their daily wage," he said.
