India To Resume International Flights From March 27

The Indian government on Tuesday, 8 March 2022, affirmed to start regular international passenger and commercial flight services to and fro from March 27.

In order, the civil aviation regulator DGCA said, “…the competent authority has decided to resume scheduled commercial international passenger services to/from India with effect from March 27, 2022, i.e. start of summer schedule 2022. Accordingly, the scheduled international passenger services to/from India shall remain suspended till 2359 hrs IST on March 26, 2022.”


The DGCA in its order also said the air bubble arrangements will also stand revoked from March 27, 2022. “All these international flight operations shall be subject to strict adherence to the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare’s guidelines for international travel, which was issued on February 10, 2022, and as amended from time to time.”

On the decision of the government, Minister for Civil Aviation Jyotiraditya Scindia said, “After deliberation with stakeholders and keeping in view the decline in the Covid-19 caseload, we have decided to resume international travel from March 27 onwards.” He went on to add that with this step, “I am confident the sector will reach new heights.”
