Madhurai: Right from getting married in hospital and sporting PPE kits during weddings, Indians have gone above and beyond during COVID-19 for their nuptials. Amidst this, a wedding on a chartered flight has won full marks for ingenuity.
A couple from Tamil Nadu booked a chartered plane on May 23 from Madurai to Bangalore to perform some of the rituals on the plane. They had 130 guests in attendance, and the video has been uploaded on Twitter.
As the state extended its restrictions on May 22 after recording 36,000 fresh infections of the virus. The couples hired a Boeing 737 from SpiceJet to host their mid-air wedding.
“Since the couple was on board a SpiceJet flight, the airline has released a statement for the same and said, “A SpiceJet Boeing 737 was chartered by a travel agent in Madurai on May 23 for a group of passengers for a joy ride post their wedding. The client was clearly briefed on Covid guidelines to be followed and denied permission for any activity to be performed on board. Despite repeated requests & reminders, the passengers didn’t follow COVID guidelines & the airline is taking appropriate action as per rules”. Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) says it has issued a show-cause notice to SpiceJet and sought a detailed report on the incident.
