After UK’s Heathrow Airport opens terminal for India, now Netherlands allows flights from India

The Dutch government has lifted the ban on Indian passengers. This will allow Indian passengers to travel to the Netherlands. This move comes after the UK's Heathrow Airport allowed countries like India.

Netherlands lifts the ban on passenger flights from India, starting from June 1.

Meanwhile, according to a report by PTI, London's busy Heathrow Airport opened a dedicated new terminal on Tuesday for arrivals from countries designated as "red list", such as India, for a higher risk of COVID-19 transmission.

Travellers on direct flights from such destinations will now go through Terminal 3 and then move directly to a government-approved quarantine facility booked at the passengers' own expense.

It comes after the London airport's staff had raised fears for their safety because of overcrowding, amid concerns that travellers arriving from red list countries - from where travel is effectively banned except for British and Irish nationals or limited exceptions - were mixing with those from green and amber.

"Red list routes will likely be a feature of UK travel for the foreseeable future as countries vaccinate their populations at different rates," a Heathrow Airport spokesperson said.
