The DGCA has again extended the ban on scheduled international commercial passenger flights in India to 11.59 pm on 30 June 2021. Earlier in April, it was extended to 11:59 on the night of 31 May. The DGCA issued a circular in this regard on Friday. However, the circular issued by the aircraft regulator states that this restriction will not apply to flights specifically approved by International Cargo Operations and DGCA.
The DGCA has stated in this circular that international scheduled flights can be allowed on select routes by the appropriate authority. This permission can be given after considering each case separately.

Services suspended since March last year
Scheduled international passenger services have been suspended since 23 March 2020 due to the corona virus epidemic. But special international flights have been operating under the Vande Bharat Mission since May and under the bilateral Air Bubble Arrangement since July. India has entered into air bubble agreements with 27 countries, including the US, UK, UAE, Kenya, Bhutan and France. Under the air bubble agreement between the two countries, their airlines can operate special international flights between regions.
