India: International Flights Will Not Operate Till End of June, To Be Decided In July

The Centre on Saturday decided not open up international air travel till June-end, while the decision to restart services will be taken only in July, depending upon the prevailing circumstances at that time.

The guidelines said that only a limited number of activities will remain prohibited throughout the country, including international air travel of passengers till June-end.

The Centre had allowed limited domestic passenger flights — about one-third of the summer schedule — to operate between metros and other destinations from May 25.

Passenger air services were suspended on March 25 due to the nationwide lockdown to check the spread of Covid-19.
