India extends ban on international flights until March 31

India has extended the ban on international commercial flights until March 31, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said in a circular on Friday. The ban on scheduled overseas flights was to end on 28 February after an eleven-month gap.

The restrictions will not apply to international all-cargo operations and flights specially approved by the aviation watchdog.

“However, International Scheduled flights may be allowed on selected routes by the competent authority on a case-to-case basis,” it added.

Restrictions on international flights in the country were announced in March of last year due to the covid-19 pandemic. Over the months, the Centre has eased restrictions on most sectors of the economy but not international flight operations.
