Due to a decline in COVID-19 instances in both India and Bangladesh, both countries’ governments have announced plans to raise the number of aircraft flown under the air bubble arrangement from seven to twenty-one per week, based on the most recent statistics. Individuals traveling between these nations for medical or commercial purposes would almost certainly profit from this ruling.
The High Commission of India in Bangladesh claimed in a tweet, “Frequency of flights between India and Bangladesh to increase!” India and Bangladesh have agreed to raise the frequency of flights under the Air Bubble arrangement from seven to twenty-one per week in each nation. Will take effect on October 15, 21. Passengers traveling for medical or business objectives will benefit.”
Previously, the High Commission indicated that it will begin awarding tourist visas to individual visitors flying to India on or after November 15, on all air bubble flights. According to sources, tourist visa services began on October 12. Tourist visas on chartered aircraft will be valid exclusively for group trips. Furthermore, newly granted tourist visas will be valid only for entry into India by sea or air routes. Land route entry for visitors is currently suspended.
Flights between India and Bangladesh under the bilateral air bubble accord are expected to resume in September 2021, following a four-month pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
