Scheduled int’l flight suspension till Sept 30; flights to and from air bubble countries to continue

The government has extended suspension of scheduled international flights till September 30, 2020. However schedule flights under the travel bubbles India has started creating with
several countries like US, UK, Germany and France will be allowed and people eligible as per government norms can fly to and from India on them.
“ … the competent authority has decided to extend till 11.59 pm of September 30, 2020. This restriction shall not apply to international all-cargo operations and flights specifically
approved by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation,” the DGCA said in a statement Monday.
“However, international scheduled flights may be allowed on selected routes by the competent authority on a case to case basis,” it added. India has so far created air bubbles with USA, UK, France, Germany, UAE, Qatar and Maldives. India is in talks with many more countries to create air bubbles like Australia, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Nigeria, Bahrain, Israel, Kenya, Philippines, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand,
Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Nepal and Bhutan. The idea of these bubbles is to ensure continuity of travel between India and these countries by eligible categories of people till schedule flights resume.
