Travel bubbles likely to help stranded desis

The Union government is likely to announce the creation of travel bubbles with some countries, like Germany and France, and possibly the US and UK, too. This would allow the airlines of India and the other country to fly eligible travellers to and from India.
Some foreigners, including diplomats, OCI card-holders and Indians stranded abroad, are expected to be allowed to fly to India on the airlines of countries with which travel bubbles are created. Aviation minister H S Puri has called a press briefing on Thursday afternoon. Whether these announcements are made then remains to be seen.

For instance, the India-US bubble will allow Air India and United and Delta to fly passengers from the US to India and out of here as per home ministry norms for eligible travellers.
