Select the correct statements from the codes given below
a) 1 only
b) 2 only
c) Both are correct
d) Neither is true

Answer-c

Explanation:

No more 5/20

  • 5/20 essentially required that a domestic airline must have operated for five years and must have at least 20 aircraft before it could offer overseas services.
  • It has been replaced by a 0/20 which requires airlines to have a fleet of 20 aircrafts and no additional requirement of five years of domestic operations to fly international.
  • But quick offers of international routes may not mean much for new airlines; it is not financially feasible to scale up to a fleet of 20 aircraft just to get the right to deploy the next one on an overseas route.
  • The government should do away with the 20 aircraft requirement as well.
