Government decides to resume flights between India and UK from 8th January

Government has decided to resume flights between India and the UK from the 8th of this month. These services were suspended last month to prevent the spread of a new variant of Covid-19 discovered recently in the UK.

Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said only 30 flights per week will operate between India and the UK till January 23. Indian and UK carriers will each be operating 15 flights per week during this period to and from Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad only.

Over 60 passenger flights per week were flying between India and the UK in December. But the Civil Aviation Ministry suspended all passenger flights connecting the two countries from December 23. Several countries had also suspended flight services to the UK in the wake of the new Covid-19 strain.
