New Delhi, July 2 (IndiaToday) – Indian aviation regulator DGCA on Wednesday said the suspension of scheduled international commercial passenger flights will continue till midnight on July 31.
International scheduled flights may be allowed on selected routes by the competent authority on a case to case basis, the circular issued by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said.
The restriction will not apply to international all-cargo operations flights that have been approved by DGCA, the aviation regulator said.
The suspension of scheduled international passenger flights was last extended till June 30 amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Domestic passenger flight services resumed in the country from Monday after a hiatus of two months since the lockdown was announced on March 25, when all scheduled commercial passenger flights were suspended in India.
International flights continue to remain suspended even now.
International flights under the Centre’s Vande Bharat Mission, however, have been operating since May 2020 to selected countries since July last year.
