Digital Desk, New Delhi. In a bid to tackle the COVID pandemic, India’s civil aviation regulator on Friday extended the ban on scheduled international commercial flights till November 30. In the notification, the Central Directorate General of Aviation (DGCA) said, this restriction will not apply to international all-cargo operations and exclusively on flights approved by DGCA. It also said that scheduled international flights may be allowed on selected routes on a case to case basis. The central government had on March 23 last year banned the operation of international flights to control the spread of Kovid-19. However, the flight restrictions were later eased under an air bubble arrangement with some countries. At present, India has air bubble pacts with about 28 countries. The country has been operating Vande Bharat flights to many countries for the last one year to rescue the stranded Indians.
