Worldwide Passenger Flights to be suspended until November 30
Another blow to travelers is that international passenger flights have been suspended again, this time until November 30th after coronavirus. The Directorate-General for Civil Aviation announced this and issued a circular stating that international scheduled flights can be approved by the competent authority on selected routes on a case-by-case basis.
All scheduled international passenger flights have been suspended since March 23, but special international flights will be operated from May. This is under the mission of Vande Bharat and is due to the fact that two countries have agreed to the bilateral travel bubble that India has agreed with 18 countries.
So far, India has a bilateral travel bubble with countries like the UK, the US, the United Arab Emirates, Bhutan, Kenya and France. And according to special agreements between these countries, special international flights were carried out.
The circular provided by the DGCA also states that the cargo flights will be carried out on schedule and all international cargo flights will be carried out as before the pandemic.
Domestic flights in India started on May 25th and resumed after a break of 2 months.
Previously, under the new Under Unlock 5.0 guidelines, the union’s Home Office had mentioned that international air travel would not resume until October 31, with the exception of those authorized by the center. And now the date has been pushed back further with no information on when the flights for international travel will resume.
