Air India cancels flights to UK for a week

Air India announced yesterday that all flights between India and the United Kingdom will be cancelled from April 24 to April 30. During this period, India’s flag carrier airline will operate flights from Mumbai and Delhi only once per week.

The airline’s announcement comes after the UK added India to its ‘Red List’ in view of the growing COVID-19 cases in India.

“Passengers who were to travel between India & UK may note that in view of recent restrictions announced by the UK, flights from/to the UK stand cancelled from 24th to 30th April 2021. Between 24th to 30th April 2021 we are in the process to schedule once a week flight to the UK from Delhi & Mumbai,” Air India stated.

Air India also stated that detailed updates on flight rescheduling, refunds, and waivers will be announced soon on its website and social media platforms.

The UK Health Secretary had said earlier that the UK is taking precautionary steps in response to global concerns about India’s new COVID-19 variant, and has added India to the “Red List”. The ban will take effect on Friday, April 23 from 4 pm.

Anyone who has started their journey from India within the last 10 days will not be admitted to the UK. However, holders of British or Irish passports and holders of UK residency are allowed to enter subject to conditions. But they have to be quarantined for 10 days in a government approved hotel.
