April 30 2021 India’s Civil Aviation Administration announced on April 30 that it would extend a ban on international commercial passenger flights until May 31 because of the worsening of coronavirus pandemic.
The Civil Aviation Administration of India issued a statement saying that the government decided to continue to extend the ban on all international commercial passenger flights in and out of India until 23:59 local time on May 31.
The ban does not include international cargo flights and flights licensed by the General Administration of Civil Aviation, the statement said. The competent authorities may also allow international scheduled flights on a case-by-case basis on certain routes.
In March last year, the Indian government suspended all international commercial passenger flights to and from India following the outbreak. Since then, the ban has been extended several times.
