CAA’s action came after it was reported that airlines had suspended meal service on domestic flights citing Coronavirus restrictions.

In an official statement, CAA said that airlines were allowed to resume serving packed meals to passengers on domestic flights last month. CAA had suspended meal service on domestic flights in November last year after a sharp rise in COVID-19 cases.
