Here’s When International Flights Will Return For India

New Delhi: Aviation Ministry Secretary, Rajiv Bansal said on Wednesday that international flight operations are likely to be back to normal for India “by the end of the year”.

It may be recalled that all international flights (barring those on repatriation missions and carrying essential goods, like medicines and food) were grounded in March 2020, as the raging COVID-19 pandemic forced the country to go for lockdown.

Embargos were lifted once the number of cases dipped and as vaccination coverage soared, with ‘air bubble’ arrangements negotiated with other countries. Currently, India has 25 such arrangements.

Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia last week said the government was in the process of normalising international flight operations.

“I am all for regaining our space in the civil aviation arena in the world and making a hub in India and for more wide body aircraft. We will get there but bear with me and trust me… I am on your side. We will work together but in a safe environment,” Scindia was quoted as saying at a public event.
