International flights to remain suspended till July 31


New Delhi, Jul 3 (IANS): The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) issued a circular on Friday extending the suspension on scheduled commercial international flight operations to and from India till July 31.

The development comes exactly a week after the suspension on oversees air services was extended till July 15.

The regulator said the validity of the earlier circular has been extended till 11.59 pm IST of July 31.

"However, international scheduled flights may be allowed on selected routes by the competent authority on case to case basis," the circular read.

Last month, Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said that re-commencement of international flight services will depend on factors like 'border acceptance' norms in the arriving country and the traffic demand.

That time, he hinted at the prospects of bilateral bubble arrangements, which will allow some international operations between countries.

At present, healthy demand for evacuation flights has been witnessed in the North America-India sector.

Passenger air services were suspended on March 25 due to the nationwide lockdown to check the spread of Covid-19, although domestic air services have resumed in a phased manner from May 25.

Currently, airlines are only allowed to deploy 45 per cent of their total capacity.

    Okay! Whats hindering to operate evacuation flights?? India has more cases than gulf. Why not bring stranded Indians back home? So many schools, institutions, convention centers offering quarantine. Our state government is lazy!

    This man will not allow international flights till he pulls out Air India out of the mess. Hence this may continue for several months to come. Many of the countries, except a few have started international flts. But our aviation minister sincerely extends the deadline each time by a fortnight, thereby fooling the people.

    Very good that international filghts have been suspended. We will not have anyone bringing the dreaded virus to India. All flights should be cancelled.
