There will be no effect on flights going to countries that have signed air bubble agreements.
Keeping in mind the spread of Corona pandemic in the country, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation has extended the restrictions on international flights till August 31. According to a new circular issued by the DGCA, international flights will still remain banned till August 31. However, this circular will not be applicable to flights already undertaken by DGCA.
At present, commercial flights to and from India have been banned. Which was earlier scheduled to end on July 31. However, for the last few days, there has been some increase in the cases of corona again. Due to which keeping in mind the safety, this ban has been extended till 31 August. However, this ban will not affect the cargo plane either. Apart from this, there will be no change in the operation of those flights which have already been given permission by DGCA.

Some countries including the US, UK, UAE, Kenya, Bhutan and France have entered into air bubble agreements with India. Due to this, flights going to these countries have been kept operational. Apart from this, these flights are also being operated by airline companies only. But in view of the possibility of a third wave, this restriction has been extended.
