Due to the Omicron threat, India is likely to delay the return of commercial international flights, which was originally set to begin on December 15.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), the aviation regulator, has postponed the resumption of scheduled international flights until December 15, with an effective date to be announced later. The DGCA published a statement today (December 1) that says as follows, "In view of the merging 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".
