Government of India has allowed the operation of regular international flights with several countries from 15 December 2021.

Regular international flights were suspended in March last year, as the country went under complete lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The decision to resume scheduled international flights has been taken in consultation with the Ministry of Health in the light of the worldwide COVID situation, especially the first time the new strain B.1.1.529 has been detected in South Africa.

The variant has since spread to neighboring Botswana, Israel and Hong Kong.

The countries which do not included on the list are;

  1. United Kingdom
  2. France
  3. Germany
  4. Netherlands
  5. Finland
  6. South Africa
  7. Brazil
  8. Bangladesh
  9. Botswana
  10. China
  11. Mauritius
  12. New Zealand
  13. Zimbabwe and
  14. Singapore 
Aviation ministry secretary Rajiv Bansal said on Wednesday that India can resume scheduled international flight operations by the end of this year.

Last week the Union Aviation Minister, Jyotiraditya Scindia, said that the Indian government is "evaluating the process" to normalize international flight operations. Scindia also said that with India getting back to normal, the resurgence of the pandemic in parts of Europe cannot be ignored.

Scindia said at the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) Global Economy Policy Summit, "We are evaluating the process. We are coming back to normalcy. First, we allowed 100% passenger capacity in our domestic flights and now we allowed in-flight meals in those flights,"
