‘Air bubbles’ key to resuming international flights amid COVID: Hardeep Puri

New Delhi, Jul 16 (ANI): Speaking on the future of international air travel amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Minister of State with independent charge for Civil Aviation, Hardeep Singh Puri, on July 16 said until the situation returns back to pre-coronavirus era, international flights can be made possible only through “bilateral air bubbles”. “Till international civil aviation can reclaim its pre-COVID numbers, I think answer will lie through bilateral air bubbles which will carry a possible number of people but under defined conditions as countries are still imposing entry restrictions including India,” Puri said during a media interaction in the national capital.
