DGCI postpones reopening of international flights indefinitely

New Delhi: In light of the new COVID-19 virus variant known as Omicron, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCI) postponed the resumption of foreign flights indefinitely on December 1.

In light of the evolving global scenario and the emergence of new variants of concern, the DGCA said, the situation is being closely monitored in consultation with all stakeholders, and an appropriate decision indicating the effective date of resumption of scheduled commercial international passenger services will be notified in due course.

The authority said last week that foreign flights will resume on December 15 after a 20-month hiatus. It stated that countries not on the Health Ministry's "at risk" list might return to their pre-COVID flying schedules as of December 15, while those on the list could return to 50 pecent to 70 pecent of their previous schedule.

Strict rules for those coming from abroad to come into effect from today, know what changes will be made?
