Amid the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the aviation sector was adversely impacted due to the imposed travel restrictions.
Scheduled international passenger flights still continue to remain suspended in the country since March 23 due to the pandemic.
However, special international flights have been operating under Vande Bharat Mission since May and under bilateral air bubble pacts signed with various countries since July.
