Though International flights in India will remain suspended till September 30, the country has established bilateral air bubble arrangements with 13 countries Afghanistan, Bahrain, Canada, France, Germany, Iraq, Japan, Maldives, Nigeria, Qatar, UAE, UK and US.

Making the announcement on Twitter, Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said, “Air Bubbles are in place with 13 countries. Others are being finalised.

In addition to existing countries, people can also fly between India & Afghanistan, Bahrain, Canada, France, Germany, Iraq, Maldives, Nigeria & Qatar.

Carriers of India and these countries will operate.” Notably, under a bilateral air bubble pact, airlines of both the countries can operate international flights with certain restrictions. They are said to be reciprocal, which means that airlines from both countries enjoy equal benefits.

Who can travel to these 13 countries? Indian citizens holding a valid visa with validity of at least one month are eligible to travel to these countries.

Apart from that OCI cardholders can also arrive into India now.

The Civil Aviation Ministry has released detailed guidelines on who can travel to these countries from India along with the criteria for travelling to India from these countries.

It is high time they start now. So many travel plans of the people have been jeopardized, many of them essential. It has been quite a come down form the over booked flights and months of waiting period. The restarting is not going to be without hiccups I am sure. Only, yesterday, Dubai suspended AI flights for a fortnight because one passanger was found to be infected. I think your visit to the U.S. must be due.
