Ban on scheduled international passenger flights extended till Jan 31.


The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) extended the suspension of international scheduled passenger flights till January 31, 2022. This is a return to the monthly extension of international flight bans after the government last month decided to resume scheduled international flights December 15 onwards, and later rescinded its decision.

With the extension on the suspension, international flights will continue to operate under the air-bubble arrangement. The decision to resume regular international flights from December 15 was put in abeyance in light of the evolving situation pertaining to the Omicron variant of Covid-19. While announcing the scrapping of the resumption, the DGCA had said that the effective date of resumption would be announced in due course.
