The DGCA said on Friday it was extending the suspension of scheduled international passenger flights in the country till July 31. It also added that some international services on selected routes may be permitted on a case to case basis.

Modifying its June 26 circular that stated that scheduled international passenger flights will remain suspended till July 15, 2020, the regulator said on Friday it has decided to extend the deadline to July 31, 2020.

However, the notification mentions some exceptions. All the cargo operations and the flights approved by DGCA will be working as usual during this period of time. There is a chance that the International flights could be approved for selected routes if the concerned authority from DGCA gives it a nod. Apart from that, the commercial international flights will still have to wait for the approval from the Government of India before commencing its operations.
