The suspension of planned foreign passenger flights has been prolonged “until further orders,” according to the DGCA, the country’s aviation regulator.
The suspension was extended until February 28 on January 19.
Following the outbreak of the coronavirus, scheduled international passenger flights have been banned in India since March 23, 2020.
However, starting July 2020, special passenger flights have been flying between India and roughly 45 nations as part of air bubble agreements.
“The competent authority has decided to continue the suspension of scheduled international commercial passenger services to/from India until further orders,” the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) announced in a circular issued on Monday.
According to the DGCA, this restriction will not apply to international all-cargo operations or flights that have been specially cleared by the agency.
Fights taking place in an air bubble arrangement will be unaffected, according to the circular.
India will resume regular international passenger flights from December 15, 2021, according to the DGCA, which announced it on November 26, 2021.
Following mounting worries about the COVID-19 version Omicron, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged the Civil Aviation Ministry and the DGCA to examine their decision.
