DGCA extends suspension of international commercial flights until further notice

New Delhi : Scheduled international commercial passenger flights have been suspended until further notice, according to the DGCA. The DGCA also stated that the restrictions will not apply to international all-cargo operations or flights that the authority has specifically approved.

Until further notice, regular commercial international passenger flights are prohibited. Air transport bubbles exist between India and 40 countries, including Canada, France, Germany, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

The DGCA had previously announced that the international flight ban would be extended until February 28. The latest order of flight suspension maintains India's scheduled international passenger flight ban, which has been in effect since March 23, 2020.

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