Days after the Director-General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) announced a restriction on scheduled international commercial flights till 15 July, it has extended it for another 16 days, till 31 July.

However, it has also added that some international scheduled services on selected routes may be permitted by the authorities on a case to case basis.

In the circular issued by DGCA on 3 July, the government says except cargo operators and flights specifically approved by DGCA, all other commercial international flights won't run till the end of July.

Scheduled international passenger flights were suspended in India on 23 March in light of coronavirus pandemic.

While domestic passenger flights resumed on 25 May after a gap of two months due to multiple lockdowns imposed, international travel still needs to wait.
