The Indian government has signed an air bubble agreement with Australia, allowing all eligible passengers to travel between the two nations. The bilateral air bubble is a mechanism for resuming flights between two countries that meet specific criteria during the pandemic.

Scheduled international flight operations remain suspended at least till 31 Jan. 2022, according to a recent notification by civil aviation regulator the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). However, flights under the bilateral air bubble pacts with selected countries continue to operate. India has now added yet another country to the list of countries where air travel bubbles exist.
