New Delhi: India will resume operations of scheduled international flights from December 15, the Civil Aviation Ministry said on Friday. However, this order does not include 14 countries from which travel has been barred by India. Therefore, the existing air-bubble flight arrangements with these 14 countries will continue.

Based on the countries recognised as “at-risk” by MoHFW, the countries have been categorised into 3 categories with separate capacity restrictions.

Scheduled international flights have been suspended in India since March 23 last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
