India And Uae Air Bubble Agreement

India has now concluded Air Bubble agreements with 10 countries around the world. These include the United States, Canada, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, the Maldives, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Afghanistan and Bahrain. In July, India first built travel bubbles with the United States, Germany and France. Since then, India has entered into agreements with 10 other nations – Britain, Canada, maldives, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Nigeria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Japan. Although India has extended its embargo on international flights until 30 September, “air bubbles” or “air bridges” are the only means by which international commercial air traffic has resumed since mid-July. Since then, India`s number of air bubbles has risen to 13, with Japan the last country to be on the list. India may have signed air bubble agreements with several countries, but the one with the United Arab Emirates is one of the most critical and comes as a glimmer of hope in dark times. More importantly, it appears to be strengthening already strong bilateral relations. India has built an air bubble with Afghanistan. Indian airlines and Ariana Afghan Airlines are now allowed to offer flights between India and Afghanistan and to carry on these flights the following categories of persons: in fact, at present, India only flies flights under “bubbles” agreements and provides an advantage to the country`s airlines.

It is now a secret that these agreements constitute a form of indirect support to the country`s troubled airlines. In order to mitigate a large number of quarantine and Covid 10 testing rules in arrival destinations, governments are implementing “air bubble” agreements between countries. Air bubbles or travel corridors are systems that are set up between two countries, which perceive each other as safe and allow airlines in both countries to fly passengers in both directions without restrictions. India will have to continue looking for air bubbles to relieve the pain of the country`s airlines. The government has not yet announced any measures to help the industry, and airline sources have said this will put most airlines at risk. Similar agreements have been signed with 18 other countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Afghanistan, Bhutan, Germany, France, Japan, Qatar, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, the Maldives, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Canada, Iraq, Kenya, Oman and Ukraine.
