Bangladesh - India suspends int'l flight resumption over Omicron concerns


(MENAFN- Bangladesh Monitor) Dhaka: India on December 1 suspended regular international flight resumption from December 15, over concerns of the emerging Omicron variant of Covid-19.

A new date for resumption of international flights would be announced in due time, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation of India said, according to reports.

'In view of the emerging 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,' it said.

The Indian government had in November announced that regular international flights would resume from December 15 after a hiatus of more than 20 months. However, that decision came under scrutiny in late November as the Covid-19 situation following Omicron's emergence called for a review of the move.
