India is now setting two conditions for the resumption of international flights. They are planning that once the domestic airline traffic reaches 50 - 60% of pre-COVID-19 levels and that other countries loosen travel restrictions, India's civil aviation minister has stated on June 21st - “We can start regular international flights when our domestic traffic reaches about 50-60%, and other countries open up to international traffic without present conditionalities.” The Indian government currently restricts airlines to operate at up to 30% of pre-pandemic capacity. In a CNBC-TV18 interview that was published on 15 June, Indian budget carrier IndiGo’s chief executive Ronojoy Dutta urged the government to “move that 30% cap up to 50%”. He added that it is “time to reduce the international restrictions”.
