Notably, scheduled international passenger flights continue to remain suspended in India. However, special international charter flights have been operating under the Vande Bharat Mission since May 6 to help stranded people reach their destinations.
Various international charter flights, by the foreign airlines as well as the Indian airlines, have been operating outside this mission too. On the other hand, scheduled domestic passenger flights started operating from May 25, after a gap of two months due to the coronavirus-induced nationwide shutdown.
