NEW DELHI: The ban on the international commercial passenger flight services has been extended till March 31.
This was announced by the aviator regulator, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), through a circular issued on Friday. It, however, said the international scheduled flights may be allowed on select routes by the competent authority on a case-to-case basis.
The scheduled international flights were suspended from March 23 last year in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The restriction will not apply to cargo flights and flights specifically approved by DGCA, the circular added. Amid the suspension, special international flights have been allowed under the Vande Bharat Mission since May last year and under bilateral "air bubble" arrangements with select countries since July.
India has formed air bubble pacts with several countries including the US, the UK, the UAE, Kenya, Bhutan and France, among others. Under an air bubble pact between two countries, special international flights can be operated by their airlines between their territories.
