Civil aviation minister Hardeep Singh Puri has said that a decision to resume regular international operations will be taken as soon as countries ease restrictions on entry of foreign nationals. Mr Puri said destination countries have to be ready to allow incoming flights.
The minister said due to increasing demand for resumption of scheduled international flights by people who want to travel abroad due to compelling reasons, he reviewed the state of international flight operations around the world.
Mr Puri said, globally the situation is far from normal. He said most countries have less than 10 per cent international operations because they are allowing entry only to their own citizens and have placed restrictions on foreign nationals.
The minister said, there will be more flights under Vande Bharat Mission.
