All airlines, including Air India, started ticket booking for May 25 and onwards as the civil aviation department has given a go-ahead to airlines to resume domestic air activities from May 25. Bookings started from May 22 after the directorate general of civil aviation approved the schedule of the airlines. According to the approved schedule, these are the cities you can now fly to. The flight services are beginning after a gap of two months as all flights were cancelled from March 25 onwards owing to the total lockdown announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

According to reports, the Tamil Nadu government is not keen to allow domestic traffic inside the state and has urged the Centre to not resume operations to the state until May 31 — the official date when lockdown 4.0 is scheduled to end. However, going by the schedule approved by the DGCA, Chennai is there as one of the destinations. It will be decided later whether Chennai will be taken off the list. But bookings have started.
