June 26, 2020: Commercial International flights to and from India will remain suspended till July 15, announced the civil aviation watchdog DGCA. The restriction will not apply to international cargo operations and flights specifically approved by the aviation regulator.
Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said last week that India will take a decision on resuming international passenger flights in July if coronavirus behaves in a "predictable manner" and the entire aviation ecosystem and state governments are onboard.




The Aviation Minister said a decision regarding resuming international travel can be taken in the coming months, even earlier, when domestic air traffic would reach 50-55 per cent of its pre-COVID-19 capacity, and states would be in the position to absorb a higher number of passengers coming in.
