In the past year, we have seen that scheduled international flights have been banned by the government for rising coronavirus cases and have been relaxed taking into notice how the virus is spreadin

Due to the current turn of events, there has been a sharp rise of coronavirus cases in India thus taking this into consideration, the Director-General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has announced that there would be a ban on scheduled international flights till may end.

In a circular that has been provided by the DGCA, they mention that all scheduled International Flights have been canceled until May 31, 2021, “However, international scheduled flights may be allowed on selected routes by the competent authority on a case to case basis”.

This ban will not apply to international all-cargo operations and flights that have been approved by the DGCA.

Last year on March 23, 2020, all international flights were suspended in India due to the rising number of coronavirus cases. However, permission was provided for Vande Bharat Mission and later several air travel bubble arrangements were made for passengers to travel to different destinations.

Although things were easing gradually, a new contagious and deadly strain of coronavirus strain was located in India and thus the DGCA had to ban all the scheduled international flights in India till May 31.
