International flights to resume soon but only through air bubbles

Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri in a press briefing today said international flights may resume under bilateral air bubbles with other countries with certain conditions as many are imposing entry restrictions even now, including India in the wake of novel coronavirus pandemic.

A travel bubble or a bilateral air bubble is a travel corridor between two countries that wish to reopen their borders and re-establish connections with each other. This is an exclusive partnership considered between countries that have either largely eliminated the virus, or trust the testing numbers.

Air France will be operating 28 flights between Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Paris from 18 July to 1 August, while American carrier United Airlines would be flying 18 flights between India and the US from July 17 to July 31.
