Flights between the 2 countries have been increased from 10 to 20 per week.
The decision came after India was moved to the "amber list" by the UK government.
Since the Covid-19 situation in India is improving and there is a decline in the Covid cases, the UK government has moved India into the “amber list”. British Airways now has additional flights between India and UK based on the government’s move.
The airline British Airways has started operating additional flights between India and UK starting August 16. Flights between the 2 countries have been increased from 10 to 20 per week.
As per the airline’s statement, “British Airways will now operate 20 direct return flights across Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad providing convenient options for customers wanting to travel to London, Heathrow. These flights will not only reunite several people who have been kept apart from their loved ones due to covid-19 but also provide convenient options to eligible students to connect to the UK and US on the airlines’ codeshare partner American Airlines.”
Fully vaccinated passengers will no longer be required to follow the 10-day hotel quarantine period. Indian students wishing to travel to the UK and beyond for further studies ahead of the start of a new academic year will get new travel options with the increase in the number of flights.
