India: International flight ban extended till 31 January

India on Thursday extended the ban on international commercial passenger services until January 31, 2022. However, the restrictions will not apply to cargo flights and those approved by the regulator, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

Scheduled international flights will be allowed on selected routes.

India has signed bilateral air bubble agreements with several countries, and has formed air bubble pacts with around 25 countries, including the US, the UK, the UAE, Kenya, Bhutan and France. Rules stipulate that those special international flights can be operated by their airlines following an air bubble pact between two countries, irrespective of the travel ban, which initially came into place on March 22, 2020.
