The Indian government has activated bilateral air service agreements with 116 countries and is allowing foreign carriers to serve India to add more flights to the country’s metropolitan cities in an effort to increase and expand connectivity between India and nations around the world.

In a written response to the Parliament, Minister of State for Civil Aviation Gen VK Singh (retd) stated that India has signed bilateral Air Services Agreements (ASA) with 116 foreign countries.

“The Indian government has activated bilateral air service agreements with 116 countries and is allowing foreign carriers to serve India to add more flights to the country’s metropolitan cities in an effort to increase and expand connectivity between India and nations around the world.”

He went on to say that travel industry experts believe the government’s move to sign ASA will benefit passengers and may bring down the airfares.

Currently, due to a significant imbalance in the number of points of call in favour of foreign carriers, the Government of India is not granting any non-metro airport as a new point of call to any foreign carrier for the purpose of operating passenger services.
