India’s first flight under air bubble arrangement to take off for Washington on July 22

Under the so-called air bubble arrangement, the flight from India is all set to take off for Washington from Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) at 1.15 am on July 22. 

On the same day, a flight from Washington will also be the first one to make a landing at the IGIA under the newly announced bilateral arrangement. 

Under the new bilateral arrangement, Air France will operate a total of 28 flights between Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Paris from July 22 till August 1, while United Airlines will operate 18 flights between Delhi, Mumbai, Newark and San Francisco from July 22 until July 31. 

This comes after Union Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Puri had announced last week that Air France and United Airlines of the United States will operate a limited number of international flights under so-called “air bubble” arrangements with India, which is a travel corridor between the two nations who wish to reopen their borders and re-establish their ties with each other.
