International passenger flights suspension extended until further notice: DGCA | Mobility News

The Director General of the Civil Aviation Authority (DGCA) on March 28 said that the suspension of international airlines set up in the country has expanded “until further notice.” On January 19, the suspension was extended to February 28.

International flights have been suspended in India since March 23, 2020, following the outbreak of Covid-19. However, major airlines have been operating between India and around 45 countries since July 2020 under the bubble programs created with them.

In a joint statement dated March 28, the DGCA stated, “The competent authority intends to extend the suspension of scheduled international train services to / from India until further notice.”

This restriction does not apply to international freight services and aircraft specifically approved by the DGCA, he mentioned.

Fighting under air traffic control will not be affected, the division said. DGCA has on November 26, 2021, announced that India will resume scheduled international flights from December 15, 2021.

A day later, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked the Civil Aviation Authority and the DGCA to reconsider its decision in the wake of concerns raised over the Covid-19 Omicron variant.

On February 1, 2021, the DGCA revoked the Nov. 26 decision without specifying how long the suspension of the international airline program would continue.
