After 2 years of momentary suspension in regular international flights, India is now likely to allow them to operate from March 15. The officials will follow the standard protocols that are effective at Indian airports for international passengers. However, the confirmation hasn’t come yet from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation.
Given the consistent decline in Covid cases, a decision on resuming scheduled international flights has almost been arrived at by the Civil Aviation Ministry following consultation with the Health Ministry, the report said.
The information to resume the regular international flights has been known from the Civil Aviation Ministry following consultation with the Health Ministry with the downfall in Covid cases. The necessary safety measures were already in effect from February 14, which have to be implemented by the passengers.
The regular international flights had been banned since March 2020, ascribed to Corona Virus severity. But, special passenger flights have been running between India and around 40 countries since July 2020 under air bubble arrangements.
