India puts international flights on hold

The panic created by the new Covid variant Omicron has forced the Indian government to hit the pause button on resuming scheduled international flights.

Last Friday, the civil aviation ministry announced that international flights, which were suspended in March last year, would resume from December 15. But after various countries suspended flights, citing concerns over Omicron, the Indian government also decided to put its earlier move on hold.

According to a note from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation: “In view of the merging global scenario … the situation is being watched closely in consultation with all stakeholders and an appropriate decision indicating the effective date of resumption of scheduled commercial international passenger services shall be notified in due course.”
