Government extends ban on international flights till April 14


In a measure to minimise the spread of novel coronavirus, the government today has extended the ban on international flights till 6.30 p.m., April 14. However, the order will not apply to approved international cargo operations. The cases of coronavirus has already surpassed 600, as the nation enters day 2 of the 21-day lockdown.

The government had banned all international commercial flights landing in India for a week beginning March 22. In line with the government decision, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) issued a circular stating that no international commercial flights will be allowed to land at airports in India for a week beginning March 22.

The centre has already suspended the visas of all incoming tourists and barred passengers of flights from the European Union, the European Free Trade Association, Turkey and the United Kingdom. Travellers from several countries are also subject to a 14-day quarantine when they arrive in India.
