India and Kuwait sign air bubble deal to fly stranded passengers

03 August 2020

India and Kuwait have signed a transport bubble deal which will enable airlines to fly stranded passengers both to and from India.

An air bubble deal between two countries helps in chalking out the restrictions and regulations under which airlines of the two countries can operate.

However, as Kuwait issued a temporary ban of return travel from seven countries, including Pakistan, India, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Iran, and Bangladesh, stranded passengers from India cannot fly to Kuwait.

Meanwhile, India has also signed air bubble deals with Germany, USA, France and UAE to enable gradual movement of passenger traffic during Covid-19, while negotiations are on with Britain and is in final stages.

Ever-since the flight suspension began in India, at least more than 2500 repatriation flights have been approved by the country to carry stranded passengers to and from India.

The nationals from the seven banned countries can enter Kuwait after completing quarantine period of 14 days outside these countries being allowed to enter Kuwait.

Meanwhile, India has further extended suspension of scheduled international flights to and from the country till 31st August.
