Air India Express Continue To Operate Flights From Saudi Arabia To India Under VBM


As Saudi Arabia’s General Administration of Civil Aviation (GACA) on Wednesday has suspended flights to and from India Saudi Arabia, low-cost carrier Air India Express in a tweet clarifies that it will continue to operate flights from Saudi Arabia to India under the Vande Bharat Mission.

However, Air India Express will not operate flights from India to Saudi Arabia till 4th Oct 2020.

“FlyWithIX : Air India Express Vande Bharat Mission flights would continue to carry passengers on its flights from Saudi Arabia to India. ***The Airline would not carry passengers from India to Saudi Arabia.” Air India Express Twitted;

The GACA on Wednesday has suspended flights to and from India, Brazil, and Argentina due to the rising number of Covid-19 positive cases.

As India has not yet entered into the Air Bubble agreement with Saudi Arabia, Indian airlines including Air India Express, SpiceJet, and IndiGo are only operating charter and Vande Bharat Mission flights from Saudi Arabia to India.

After the ban imposed, Air India Express has clarified that it will continue to operate flights from Saudi Arabia to India but other Indian carriers like IndiGo and SpiceJet have not yet posted any update on this.

So, we suggest if you booked your flight to travel from Saudi Arabia to India from any of these airlines, please check the status of the flight with the airline prior to your travel.


If your flight has been cancelled due to the ban you may get either a full refund or free date change from the airline; please keep in touch with the airline or travel agent for refund/rebooking.
