New Delhi, Jan 19 : With Covid situation yet to improve in most countries, aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has extended suspension of scheduled international flights till February 28, 2022.

Flights being operated under air bubble agreement with nearly 40 countries would not be affected by the suspension order.

The restriction will also not apply to international all-cargo flights and operations would continue.

“In partial notification of circular dated 26-11-2021, the competent authority has decided to extend the suspension of scheduled international commercial passenger services from India till 23:59 hrs IST of 28th February, 2022,” the DGCA order said.

The government had suspended scheduled international flights in March 2020 in the wake of Coronavirus pandemic. While regular international flights remain suspended, airlines have been operating flights to various countries under air-bubble agreement, a temporary arrangement between two countries to allow flights.
