After a long break of 2-3 months, international flights are set to fly again. This has proved to be the biggest relief to Indians having their families in foreign countries. India has announced that it’s all set to begin the international flights from the country soon. Also, airline operations from countries like- France, UAE, the US, and Germany will resume scheduling international flights to India soon.
This announcement was preceded by the confirmation between India and three other countries.
To announce this decision, Hardeep Singh Puri, the Civil Aviation Minister, used his Twitter account and wrote- “Vande Bharat has been a successful evacuation Mission. While more than 227K people have been evacuated on VBM flights, more than 89K have flown out. Overall 687K Indians have returned on VBM along with domestic & foreign charters, naval ships & through land borders.” Source: Twitter.
With this, Puri shared a photograph consisting of the upcoming international flight details. He further wrote- “In an initiative to further expand our international civil aviation operations, air bubble arrangements with US, UAE, France & Germany are being put in place while similar arrangements are also being worked out with several other countries.” Source: Twitter.
In this regard, on Thursday, Mr. Puri addressed the media and confirmed the air bubbles creation among India and the other three nations, including- German, the United States, and France.
While addressing the media, Puri said- “Until international civil aviation can reclaim its pre-COVID situation in terms of numbers, the answer lies through these bilateral air bubbles, which will carry as many people as possible but under defined conditions.” Source: Times of India.
These flights will be open to Indian people only.
