International flights to India to resume by Dec-end

International passenger flight services are expected to be normalised “very soon” and possibly by the end of December, Civil Aviation Secretary Rajiv Bansal said on Wednesday.

Scheduled international passenger flights to and from India remain suspended since March 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic. The suspension has been extended till November 30.

Normalisation of international flights is expected “very soon” and by the end of this year, Bansal said here.

Under an air bubble arrangement between two countries, international passenger flights can be operated by their respective carriers into each other’s territories subject to certain conditions.

“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,” he had said.
