The Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) is looking into the possibility of resuming regular international flights during the COVID-19 pandemic after the US, UK, and Canada start vaccination programs.
According to a report in the Economic Times, the department is likely to discuss the issue with airlines as of today.
“The issue of resumption of international flights and expansion of existing air bubble flights will be discussed with all airlines,” a source told the paper.
International flight operations have been suspended since the end of March 2020 due to the pandemic. Only flights through the Vande Bharat Mission and bubble agreements with countries are allowed.
Domestic flights resumed on May 25 with a capacity of 33 percent. The airlines are now allowed to operate with a capacity of 80 percent.
