The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Transport, Tourism and Culture on Thursday urged the central government to resume scheduled international flight services from India for the convienence of travellers.

This comes as several countries have relaxed travel guidelines for Indians and have started international flights with India.

According to an ANI news agency report, TG Venkatesh, chairman of the parliamentary committee for transport, tourism and culture, said that the committee is advocating for the resumption of scheduled international flights.

TG Venkatesh said that "We have told officials and Ministry in interactive meetings that we should allow international flights immediately to places wherever COVID cases are low and where there are islands and safe zones. Tourism department should be restored."

Due to the coronavirus pandemic scheduled international flights from India are suspended from 23 March 2020 and recently DGCA of India has extended the suspension of scheduled international flights till 31 August 2021.
