Flyers using the Delhi airport complained of huge crowds and utter chaos following the implementation of new travel guidelines aimed at preventing the spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19. All passengers coming from "at-risk" countries have to compulsorily take RT-PCR test and five per cent of passengers arriving from other countries would also have to take the test on a random basis, according to the Union Health Ministry's guidelines issued last week.

Passengers complained of social distance norms not being followed.


“I personally had horrific experience - no social distancing, 2 people to take samples of 300 passengers, no separate queue for passengers taking connecting flight,” tweeted passenger Sunaina Sharma on Sunday, sharing a photo of the crowd at the Delhi airport.
