After taking cognizance of the global data of vaccinations around the world and consulting with the major stakeholders, the government finally took this decision to resume the International commercial flight operations from 27th March 2022.

As we already know the International flights were suspended until 26th of March 2022. The civil aviation regulator had extended the prevailing ban on International commercial flights until “further orders.”

On March 23, 2020, India had banned International flight operations as a strict measure to control and contain the spread of the corona virus. Later In 2021, the government had announced plans for resuming the international flights from December 15, 2021. This was later put off as there was the emergence of the third covid-19 wave all around the world.
