December 30th local time, Hardeep Singh Puri, the Minister of Civil Aviation of India, said on social media that in view of the current epidemic prevention situation, the Indian civil aviation department has extended the ban on flights to and from the United Kingdom from the original 31st to January 7.
As soon as this news came out, netizens were very nervous. India has close contact with the United Kingdom, and many Indians work or study in the UK.
Some netizens said that it is the beginning of the semester of British universities, and the time of the ban on flights to and from the UK has been continuously extended, causing great losses to the people.
Many netizens also expressed support for the government’s decision. Previously, there had been temporary “bubble flights” between India and the United Kingdom to ensure air traffic between the two countries during the epidemic.
