NEW DELHI: The go nment has extended suspension of scheduled international flights till September 30, 2021. However, Vande Bharat Mission and other flights under air bubbles will continue and people e gible as per go nment norms can fly to and from India on them.
新德里：印度政府延长了国际航班暂停入境至2021年9月30日。然而，Vande Bharat Mission和其他航班将继续，符合政府规定的人可以乘坐这些航班往返印度。
Scheduled international flights were suspended on March 23, 2020, and the severity of the pandemic has meant that even after 18 months there is no sign of the same resuming anytime in a hurry.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) issued an order Sunday extending the suspension of scheduled international commercial passenger services to/from India till 11.59 pm (India time) of September 30, 2021. “This restriction shall not apply to international all-cargo operations and flights specifically approved by DGCA,” the order says. It adds that “international scheduled flights may be allowed on sed routes by the competent authority on case to case basis.”
During the second Covid catastrophe surge starting mid-April, about 20 countries have imposed restrictions like flight suspensions from India or stricter entry norms for travellers from here. Now that the second wave is ebbing, a few like Switzerland, France, Germany, Maldives and Qatar are begng to lift the restrictions.
Idiots leading our country
It's so true.... Ruled by idiots...
This Is now Endemic, start living with this vir s. Flights should resume. All offices and all economic activities have resumed. Ppl are going out, believe it or not.
It is as per expectations and till corona is esting in various parts of the world, all regular flights should remain cancelled. Flights under Vande Bharat Mission and Air Bubbles are operating for emergency.
正如预期的那样，只要还有病毒，所有定期航班都应该取消。Vande Bharat Mission和Air Bubbles撤侨航班正在紧急运行。
can open international flights for those who are fully vaccinated.
Totally ridiculous. No country in the world have ever cancelled international air travel for 1.5 years. Do proper testing and resume flights. There is a limit for stupidity
Covid has become endemic and we need to learn to live with it. India is a major services exporter. It is time to end lockdowns and learn to live with taking full precautions. Look at Australia. Melbourne is in lockdown for months for 50 cases a day. It is not sustainable. China is hosting Winter Olympics in 7 months but is yet to open it’s country.
Ita just an excuse to profit some airlines by making sure that indian public dont have options to fly so the price can be increased exponentially …….DEL-London price used to be 40-50 k bht now indians have to pay 1.5 lakh
Why India does not consider to open for vaccinated travelers. It is nonsense. So India will never open its borders because of Corona? Flights should resume with some restrictions like in other countries.. It is really upseting....
unavoidable step in view of threat . go nment must become wiser by day. no withdrawal of ban blindly . ban can be lifted in phases and on reciprocal basis. travellers must co-operate by undergoing screening diligently as mandated
Remove all the restrictions on Air travel,India is the main infected country,no other country can infect India now
Ridiculous, it looks ban is a money making machine for market players and govt is a part of this
Dubai has opened today for those with 2 jabs. Why not India is opening up its commercial flights similarly? Any logic?
What purpose does this serve? Only affecting the economy and the livelihoods of people.
Any such decision should be wisely thought, first of all this loss is to Airlines by not operating flights and kee them grounded and paying rent,
When will govt stop thz corona dr?? See taliban , do theu wear masks?? Do thy hav social distancing?? Still were able to defeat US forces. See our neighbour countries all are njoying life, no mask, no vaccination but still doing bettr than India ag inst corona.
We have to live with corona , mould our life style. Let us resume normal operation like what is being done at the time ion, kumbh.
China / USA / UK / Canada open International Flights for passengers, Only India pushing the suspension dates further and further every month.
many have lost their jobs and lively hood because they could not return back to countries where they were working.
cases are increasing due to on and off relaxation.
intl travellors can be kept under control whereas it is local people the govt is not able to control.
Modi sir I have taken 2 dose vacation I have travel to abroad please make porper law for avation in India.
