Regular international commercial flights will not resume until January 31, the government stated on Thursday, amid widespread concern about the new Omicron coronavirus type. Those covered by the "air bubble" agreements, on the other hand, will continue to operate as usual.

International flights were supposed to start again on December 15th. However, due to the spread of the new 'Omicron' form in multiple countries, the country has halted its preparations to resume international flights. In a circular, the aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said that the suspension on foreign flights would be extended until January 31, but that it would not apply to international all-cargo operations or flights that it had specifically approved.
