India Approves Revised Air Bubble With Afghanistan, Philippines

At a time when international flights have been suspended due to coronavirus pandemic, India on Wednesday approved the signing of revised air service agreements with Afghanistan as well as Philippines. An official statement stated that the revised air services agreement signifies an important landmark in the civil aviation relations between India and the two countries. The development comes at a time when India has formed air bubble arrangements with more than 22 countries.

In this pandemic scenario, if a country wants to operate passenger flights to another country, a “bilateral air services agreement” has to be negotiated to decide how many airlines, port of entries and total flights (or seats) per week can be allowed between the two nations. 

As per updates, such a revised agreement can increase greater trade, investment, tourism and cultural exchanges between India and the two countries in tune with the developments in the civil aviation sector.
