India to end air bubble pacts as scheduled flights resume

Muscat: India's Civil Aviation Authority said that the resumption of commercial international passenger services would imply reversion to bilaterally agreed capacity entitlements and termination of air bubble arrangements.


"Airlines will, however, restrict their operations to capacity entitlements under bilateral traffic rights available with the airlines, with effect from March 21, 2022.


Special passenger flights have been functioning between India and around 40 countries since July 2020 under air bubble arrangements.


In a message to the Observer, an official of GoFirst said, "The airline, which used to operate flights to Mumbai and Kannur in the pre-pandemic days, will soon resume services to both these destinations as we finalize our schedules."


All these persons shall be subject to strict adherence to the MOH&FWS guidelines for international travel dated February 10 and as amended from time to time.


Regular international flight operations will resume from March 27 and will follow the standard operating procedures effective at Indian airports for foreign arrivals and departure, the government said on Tuesday.


Scheduled international flight services have remained suspended in India since March 23, 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
