New Delhi. The central government has extended the ban on commercial international flights for another month. Now this ban will continue till July 31. According to its earlier order, the ban on international flights was imposed till June 30, but today by issuing a circular from the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), the ban imposed on international flights was extended till July 31. Let us tell you that commercial international flights have been banned since the lockdown imposed in March 2020 after the onset of Corona infection. However, during this time, under the Air Bubble Agreement, some flights of Air India have been allowed to come to some countries, so that Indians stranded there can be brought to India or citizens of other countries can be sent back to their country. Under this, Vande Bharat Mission and special flights are being operated from some countries, but there is a complete ban on normal international flights.

Domestic and international flights were banned along with the imposition of lockdown in March 2020 due to the spread of Corona. Later, domestic flights were started from 25 May 2020 with some conditions, but the ban on international flights still continues. Domestic airlines were allowed to fly with less capacity from 25 May 2020. Along with this, minimum and maximum limits were also fixed on airfares so that money could not be collected arbitrarily from passengers. Initially, the flight was allowed to operate with a total capacity of 33 per cent. Later this capacity was gradually increased and on 3 December 2020 the flight capacity was increased to 80 percent.

A demand has been made to the Director General of Civil Aviation to allow the operation of the air service at full capacity, so that the loss being caused to the airlines can be minimized.
