Charter flights Not likely to begin


However, since the international flights are yet to function, the government of  Goa is now registering only domestic tourists.

Consequently, the charter flights bring in foreign tourists to Goa and the shack owners rely exclusively on these charter flights. But this year due to the pandemic still recovering, the government has announced to reduce the shack owners’ license fees by 50 percent.
