The ministry also made the same arrangements with Ukraine and Bangladesh. However, the regular international flights will remain suspended in view of the coronavirus pandemic all across the world.
About Air Bubble
With the sudden outbreak of the pandemic all across the world, the commercial flights flying between the two countries were stopped. As a result, many passengers faced lots of issues during the pandemic. So, the air bubble is a temporary solution for this halt in commercial flights. Under the AirBubble, two countries allow international passenger flights to fly passengers either way without any restrictions. This type of relationship is mainly established between those countries that perceive each other to be safe.
To board in the flights flying under the air bubbe, the passengers have to register themselves with the embassy.
