The news was welcomed by the players in the industry who were hard hit by the pandemic that had taken some out of the business due to high operating cost with less profits.

A meeting between the stakeholders and the government has already been done as they welcomed the news and promised to ensure passenger safety to curb the spread of the news.

Also on the table is the discussion of transport to reduce due to increased number of seats to carter for the additional cost.
