No need for registration for Vande Bharat flights, passengers can book directly with the airlines

This news will definitely cheer up air travellers as the Ministry of Home Affairs has announced that passengers will now be able to book tickets directly with airlines under the Vande Bharat Mission and Air Transport Bubble Arrangement. However, this is only for non-scheduled commercial flights.

On August 22, a standard operating protocol (SOP) was issued by the Home inistry stating that travellers on outbound flights “will have to apply to the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) or an agency/agencies designated by MoCA for this purpose with necessary details, including places of departure & arrival”.

On Wednesday, the ministry took to Twitter to announce that it “has designated all the airlines operating under Vande Bharat Mission & air transport bubble arrangements as designated agencies for this purpose”.

India has now made bilateral air travel bubbles with the UK, US, UAE, Canada, France, and Germany along with the Maldives. With several other countries, the negotiations are still going on. Since May 6, several scheduled international flights have been suspended because of the COVID-19 outbreak. Given this, since May 6, the Vande Bharat Mission has rescued more than 13.5 lakh passengers from various countries.
