Commercial international scheduled flights to restart in India from March 27

The tourism industry of India is mostly likely to recover once the international flights start.

After a period of two years, India has lifted its ban on scheduled international commercial flights. After the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in March 2020, the country ended up suspending all international flights. After recognizing the increased vaccination coverage across the globe, India has now decided to lift the ban. This statement was issued by the Civil Aviation Ministry.

The date decided by the government to lift the ban is March 27, 2022.

The Civil Aviation Ministry said in a statement, “From 27.03.2022, i.e., the start of Summer Schedule 2022, the Government of India has taken a decision to restart scheduled commercial international passenger services for all the flights operating to/from India.” This decision was taken after consultation with the stakeholders. The government also recognized that vaccination coverage across the globe has been effectively increased. ”

Since July 2020, India has had air bubble arrangements going on. Under this scheme, India Is tied up with select countries. The flights were operated in each other’s territories. Normal scheduled flights were banned all this time, and this arrangement came with its own restrictions. From March 27, air bubble arrangements will be revoked, as stated by Jyotiraditya Scindia, Civil Aviation Minister.

The reopening of international flights, however, comes with its own set of guidelines. The international operations need to follow all guidelines, said the Civil Aviation Ministry. These guidelines will be issued by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
