New Delhi: The ban on international passenger flights coming to India has been extended till April 14 as part of the measures to check the spread of coronavirus in the country.
“It has been decided that all scheduled international commercial passenger services shall remain closed till 1830 hrs GMT of April 14, 2020,” aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said in a statement on Thursday.
“However, this restriction will not apply to international all-cargo operations and flights specifically approved by DGCA,” it added.
This implies that international commercial passenger flights will be able to operate from April 15, 12 am (IST).
The DGCA had earlier suspended all international commercial passenger operations till March, 29. Domestic commercial passenger operations however, continue to remain suspended till March 31 as of now.
