India extends ban on international flights until end of July

The General Authority of Civil Aviation of India announced today, Wednesday, the extension of the ban on scheduled international flights to and from India until July 31, except for air cargo, repatriation and relief services.


The authority said in a statement carried by the Indian newspaper "Hindustan Times", that the decision comes within the measures taken by the government to work to limit the spread of the Corona virus, adding that the competent authorities may allow regular international flights on specific routes on a case-by-case basis.


The statement indicated that domestic flights resumed from Monday after a two-month hiatus since the announcement of the closure on March 25, when all scheduled commercial passenger flights in India were suspended.


It is noteworthy that the civil aviation authorities in India announced the suspension of all international flights in March 2020 with the spread of the Corona virus.
