Taking the current situation into consideration, Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Friday extended the suspension on international flights from/to India till May 31.
According to reports, 21 countries have banned flights on travellers from India. The international flights which were already scheduled have also been banned since March 23, 2020.
Flights to only a few foreign destinations are permitted as India has signed air bubble agreements with about 27 countries. These include: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bahrain, Japan, Bhutan, Nepal, Nigeria, Qatar, the Netherlands, Rwanda, the UK, Seychelles, Ethiopia, Germany, Oman, Canada, Iraq, France, Kenya, Kuwait, Tanzania, Ukraine, the UAE, the Maldives, Uzbekistan, and the US.
The second wave in India has led to cases soaring to about 4 lakhs per day, because of which the countries abroad are preferring not to let Indian travellers enter their country. The list is keep growing with every coming week.

Please note: The restriction doesn't apply to international all-cargo operations and other flights specially approved by the DGCA.
