Also, international scheduled flights can be allowed on selected routes on a case-to-case basis, the DGCA added.

The international flights to-and-fro in India has been suspended since March 2020 when the nationwide lockdown was first announced to trim the spread of COVID-19.

Later, the government started a special programme–Vande Mataram–to bring Indians stuck abroad.

A pact–Air Bubble–was also signed by the government with 24 countries to operate special flights between the two countries.
