The decision has been taken to extend the temporary suspension of flights to and from the United Kingdom till January 7, 2021, Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri has said.
"Thereafter strictly regulated resumption will take place for which details will be announced shortly," he added, in a statement on social media platform Twitter, on December 30.
Flights to the country were suspended till December 31.
The announcement came a day after he had talked about "a slight extension" in the suspension of flights to the UK.“We are applying our mind (on the issue of extending the temporary suspension beyond December 31). I foresee a slight extension in the temporary suspension but it will not be a long or indefinite (suspension),” Puri had said at a press conference.
