Puri said "airlines are advised to open their bookings only after a decision in this regard has been taken by the Government."
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a 21-day national lockdown in late March to contain the spread of the virus outbreak. The lockdown has been extended until May 3 at least.
GoAir is checking with the government if the airline can continue sale of tickets for travel after the national lockdown ends on May 3, the report added.
