India suspends scheduled int’l passenger flights till Feb 28


The suspension of scheduled international passenger flights in the country has been extended till February 28, aviation regulator DGCA said on Wednesday.

Scheduled international passenger flights have been suspended in India since March 23, 2020.

However, special passenger flights have been operating between India and approximately 40 countries since July 2020 under air bubble arrangements formed with them.

This restriction shall not apply to international all-cargo operations and flight specifically approved by the DGCA, it mentioned.

The DGCA had on November 26, 2021 announced that India would resume scheduled international passenger flights from December 15, 2021.

On December 1, 2021, the DGCA revoked its November 26 decision without saying how long the suspension of scheduled international flights would continue.
