TAAI Appeal to MoCA to commence scheduled operations for airlines

The Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI) has forwarded an appeal to the Minster of Civil Aviation requesting to permit airlines to commence scheduled flights beyond the travel air bubble. This is subsequent to the meeting held by TAAI President with the Minister of Civil Aviation and the Minister of Tourism on August 13, 2020.

Currently, the travel air bubbles permit point to point services between only a few countries which have signed the agreement with India.


Jyoti Mayal, President, TAAI said, “We have appealed to permit and open the criteria for airlines to carry passengers to various other countries beyond their hubs to the under serviced markets. This is because in a lot of destinations where there are fewer requirements for VBM or air bubbles are not created, these carriers shall be able to carry passengers as per specified norms to and from India and the transiting country.”


Since travel air bubble flights too are not meeting adequate capacity, this shall open up the capacity and give opportunity to travel agents, airlines and travellers to commence their travel and business. This shall not only enhance the economy but also provide a ground to cater to non-connected travel sectors from India. TAAI expects that this will also enable commencement of business and act as a revival catalyst for travel agents in India and further restart economic activities between India and other countries.
