Earlier this week, Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri announced that an air bubble system had been set up as part of the Vande Bharat mission for flights between India and Ukraine. Special flights are intended to ensure the safety of travel between countries in the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic. The airlines of India and Ukraine will operate between the two countries. British Airways announced on Friday that it would resume direct flights between India and Britain from 17 August 2020, as part of the Air Bubble Agreement. In order to mitigate a large number of quarantine and Covid 10 testing rules in arrival destinations, governments are implementing “air bubble” agreements between countries. Air bubbles or travel corridors are systems that are set up between two countries, which perceive each other as safe and allow airlines in both countries to fly passengers in both directions without restrictions. The Ministry of the Interior recently announced that it had authorized Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) cardholders to enter India, which is one of the countries with which air bubble agreements have been concluded by the Ministry of Civil Aviation. Other foreigners from these countries have also been granted Indian visas for commercial, medical and employment purposes.¬†Although India has extended its embargo on international flights until 30 September, “air bubbles” or “air bridges” are the only means by which international commercial air traffic has resumed since mid-July. Since then, India`s number of air bubbles has risen to 13, with Japan the last country to be on the list. In the meantime, India Today has compiled a list of individuals who, under recent bilateral agreements, can travel to the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Canada to facilitate navigation by rules.

Of course, don`t forget to check the quarantine and testing rules in the destination country before you catch your flight. Such regulations will also enable group members to reconnect with each other and stimulate sectors such as travel and tourism. The Baltic countries, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, were the first to create an air bubble that allowed free travel between themselves while limiting external people.
