The suspension of scheduled international passenger flights has been extended till 30 September, said Indian aviation regulator DGCA on Monday, reported Press Trust of India (PTI).
“However, international scheduled flights may be allowed on selected routes by the competent authority on a case-to-case basis,” noted the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) in a circular.
Scheduled international passenger services continue to remain suspended in India since 23 March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Meanwhile, special international flights have been operating under the Vande Bharat Mission since May and under bilateral air bubble arrangements with other countries since July.
The circular said the suspension does not affect the operation of international all-cargo operations and flights specifically approved by the DGCA. (PTI)
