Air India had already added flights to and from Paris from November 1 to January 1 as part of the Vande Bharat Mission – the government’s formalised air bubble arrangements with 20 other countries.
It must, however, be noted that the government recently revised its guidelines for international passengers arriving in India in view of the surge of cases in Europe. travellers need not undergo institutional or home quarantine but they have to submit a mandatory negative RT-PCR report conducted within 72 hours of arrival.
Those who are unable to undergo RT-PCR test before their departure and wish to seek exemption from institutional quarantine can do so by availing the facility at the airport and undergo the test. Airports including Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, and Cochin have these provisions available.
