The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has announced the suspension of scheduled international flights till May 31 due to corona virus pandemic. However, some of the scheduled international flights may be allowed on selected routes subject to case-to-case basis according to DGCA.
After the first wave of Covid-19 pandemic, India has entered into a bubble pact with nearly 24 countries including US, UK, UAE, Kenya, Bhutan and France. Under this pact, flights are being operated under ‘Vande Bharat Mission’ since last May and under bilateral “air bubble” arrangements with selected countries from July 2020.
DGCA added that the international cargo operations continue as usual and there will be no impact whatsoever on movement of cargo across the world.
