The Govt. of India has started Vande Bharat Mission on May 6 2020 to bring stranded Indians to home amid the coronavirus lockdown and More than 50,000 people have returned from different countries ever since the mission started.
On restarting schedule international flights puri said “Several factors need to be addressed. Many international destinations are not allowing incoming passenger traffic, except for their own citizens or diplomats.”
International flights have been banned in the country since March 22 and Soon after the Centre’s Unlock 1 guidelines, the aviation regulator DGCA on Saturday said the suspension of scheduled international commercial passenger flights will continue till June 30.
Earlier last month, Puri said if the situation improves and the “virus behaves in a predictable manner”, then the commercial international flight operations could start as early as the middle of June.
