Canada extends ban on flights from India

Transport Canada announced that the existing ban has been further extended till Sept. 21 considering the pandemic and its seriousness. The Canadian government originally imposed the ban of preventing all passenger flights from India on April 22 and was scheduled to expire on Aug. 21.

Responding to this, India has written to the Canadian government expressing its “disappointment” over continuing the ban. In the note sent to Global Affairs Canada, the country’s foreign ministry, India’s high commission in Ottawa stated that the extension had caused “concern and anxiety” among nationals of the two countries.
