India extends ban on international flights until May 31

In its latest advisory, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has announced the extension of the ban on domestic and international flights until 2359 hours (IST) of May 31, 2020.

This move came after the Government of India decided to continue the lockdown up to May 31 because of the spread of Covid-19 in the country.

However, the restriction will not apply to international all-cargo operations and flights approved by DGCA. “It is once again reiterated that foreign and domestic airlines shall be suitably informed about the opening of their operations whether international to/from India or domestic respectively in due course.”

Currently, Air India is operating several repatriation flights under Vande Bharat Mission in phase 1 and phase 2.

Although flight resumption still seems afar, Airports Authority of India as released some steps that must be followed by passengers when travel opens up again.,
