Lusa - Business News - East Timor: Commercial flights banned until end of state of emergency




Dili, Oct. 26,2020(Lusa)- East Timor authorities will not authorise commercial flights for the duration of the state of emergency decreed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, because that would mean regularising air transport, the minister in charge told Lusa.

The government was responding to questions from Lusa about requests for authorisation made by airlines to carry out at least one commercial flight per month, to allow mobility of nationals and foreign citizens to and from East Timor.

Although he did not authorise commercial flights, José Agustinho da Silva said that essential flights would continue to be allowed, recalling that several trips had already been organised in recent months.

Essential flights, which include flights requested by embassies for repatriation of foreign citizens, need a request to be made by the respective embassy to the ministry of foreign affairs.

Among the flights considered essential are emergency flights, such as those operated by the World Food Programme (WFP), medical evacuation flights or others used for transporting people or cargo.

East Timor has had no regular commercial flights since March and the government has again requested the president to extend the state of emergency for 30 days, and for the seventh period ending in early November.

This request for authorisation, which is being examined on Monday in meetings of the Supreme Council for Defence and Security should then be debated in the parliament, focuses in particular on worrying developments in the epidemiological situation and the proliferation of registered cases of Covid-19 contagion, both at a regional and global level.

The government stressed that it wanted to prevent and neutralise the risks of the spread of SARS-CoV-2 to protect public health and save the capacity of the national health system.

East Timor currently has one active case of Covid-19, with a total of 28 recovered since the beginning of the pandemic. Currently, 361 people are quarantined in government facilities or hotels, and 263 in self-confinement.

Since the pandemic began, the authorities have conducted almost 10,600 tests.

Most East Timor and foreign nationals do not have access to special flights, which is hindering the mobility of people who need to enter and leave the country.
