"A limited number of scheduled domestic passenger flights to and from selected destinations and the corporate flights of the helicopter and general aviation are allowed to be operated under special consideration," CAAB said in a press release on Tuesday.
It also instructed to follow standard disinfection, sanitisation and social distancing rules for passenger, crew, equipment and aircraft (in-flight or on ground).
The CAAB made it clear that all other flights will remain suspended, but the operation of the medevac and humanitarian/ relief will continue as usual.
