IndiGo begins flights between India-Thailand after 2 years hiatus

IndiGo began flights between India and Thailand on Tuesday, following a two-year hiatus, according to a statement. Thailand is reopening its borders nearly two years after restricting tourist admission in March 2020, according to the airline's statement.

The country reopened its border to vaccinated travellers from every country on February 1 this year, it mentioned. The airline said it will operate the Thailand flights under the air bubble agreement till March 26 and thereafter as part of its scheduled commercial international operations.

"The flights will connect Bangkok with Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and Bengaluru and Phuket with Delhi and Mumbai," it stated. Earlier this month, the Centre had announced that scheduled commercial international flights will resume in India from March 27.
