India extends ban on scheduled international flights till February 28

In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, India has decided to extend the ban on scheduled international flights till February 28, 2022.

In a circular issued on Wednesday, the Director-General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said, "Authorities have decided to extend the ban on scheduled international commercial passenger flights from India till February 28, 2022."

It added that the ban does not apply to all international cargo or DGCA-approved special flights. However, the DGCA's circular states that flight operations will not be effective under the air-bubble system.

Currently, Biman Bangladesh Airlines and US Bangla Airlines operate commercial passenger flights between Bangladesh and India under the Air-Bubble Agreement.
