It will take another month to start flights going abroad from India. The decision has been taken by the aviation regulator DGCA. The DGCA said in its decision that the suspension of international passenger flights has been extended till 28 February.
DGCA has said that international scheduled flights can be allowed by the competent authority on specific routes on select routes. The latest decision will have no effect on international transport flights and the flights it has approved.
The aviation regulator clarified that this restriction has been extended to 28 February on international passenger flights. It is notable that India’s scheduled international flights have been suspended since March 23 due to the Corona epidemic, but special international flights have been operated under the Vande Bharat Mission since May. Apart from these, flights are also being operated under a two-party air bubble agreement with select countries since July.
India has entered into an air bubble agreement with about 24 countries. These countries include the United States, Britain, United Arab Emirates, Kenya, Bhutan and France. Under this agreement, India has signed a special agreement for the operation of passenger flights. It is named Air Bubble. Through this, their air lines can operate flights between the respective countries.
