Scheduled international flights will remain grounded till end of August says the civil aviation regulator DGCA because of the corona pandemic. However there will be no restrictions of cargo flights, private charters and repatriation flights.
Air travellers have the option of taking a flight under the bilateral air bubbles with US, France and Germany. In the coming days more agreements for more air bubbles with the UK and Canada can also be announced.
Planned flights by selected carriers are allowed under bilateral air bubbles which will help transport people but under defined conditions as countries, including India, are still imposing entry restrictions.
Scheduled international passenger flights have been suspended in India since 25 March in the wake of the novel coronavirus outbreak. Domestic flight operations were allowed to resume from 25 May, albeit with a limited capacity, after a gap of two months.
