Coronavirus Endemic: India resumes international flights from today
New Delhi : The international flight operations in India had been banned for more than two years and today (March 27, 2022), they will be resumed. The decision to resume flight operations was announced last week after the new coronavirus cases in the nation have decreased drastically.
Some key points below:
# From Sunday onwards, all the international flights will operate at 100 per cent capacity.
# Under the new rules, wearing PPE kits is no longer a mandatory rule for the airlines staff.
# All categories of tourist visas will be restored. "Currently valid e-tourist visas issued for five years shall stand restored to nationals of 156 countries with immediate effect,” an official statement said.
# Among the foreign airlines, Chinese flights are not yet allowed to operate in India due to increasing number of coronavirus cases in the nation.
# The international airfares are likely to fall down with the resumption of flights.
# India had banned its international flight operations in March 2020, when coronavirus pandemic had just arrived in the nation.
