The effect of the corona is now gradually decreasing on air travel. Due to the increase in the number of flights, the number of air passengers has also started increasing. In the week of February 8 to 14, the number of air passengers going to and from Raipur increased by 15 percent. However, when compared to the year 2019, the number of air travelers is still quite low.
