DGCA recently extended the suspension of international commercial passenger flights to December 31. The restrictions, however, will not apply on international all-cargo operations and flights.

Air India will commence direct flights between Hyderabad and Chicago from January 11. Bookings for the flight is now open and passengers can book their tickets on the airline’s website, booking offices or authorised travel agents.

India’s aviation safety regulator DGCA on Thursday extended the suspension of scheduled international commercial passenger flights to December 31. The restrictions, however, will not apply on international all-cargo operations and flights specifically approved by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), an official circular said.

“In partial modification of circular dated 26.6.2020, the competent authority has further extended the validity of circular issued on the subject cited above regarding scheduled international commercial passenger services to/from India till 2359 hours (IST) of December 31, 2020," the DGCA said in the circular.

International scheduled flights, however, may be allowed on selected routes by the competent authority on a case-to-case basis, the circular added. The suspension of international commercial passenger flights from/to India, which has been in place since March 23 in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, was to expire on November 30.
