The ban on international flights has been extended by Indian government till August 31. But, ban will, however, not apply to cargo international flights.

The Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) extended the ban on international flights which was to end on July 31 as per an earlier announcement.
DGCA said in its circular that, “international scheduled flights may be allowed on selected routes by the competent authority on a case to case basis.”
India has formed air bubble pacts with 27 countries, including the US, the UK, the UAE, Kenya, Bhutan and France. Under an air bubble pact between two countries, special international flights can be operated by their airlines between their territories.
