New Delhi, Aug 04 (ANI): Parliamentary Standing Committee on transport, tourism and culture suggested to re-start the scheduled international flights on Aug 04. TG Venkatesh, Chairman of Parliamentary Committee for Transport, Tourism and Culture told ANI that the committee is advocating for re-starting the scheduled international flights. "We have told officials and Ministry in interactive meetings that we should allow international flights immediately to places wherever COVID cases are low and where there are islands and safe zones. Tourism department should be restored," Venkatesh told ANI. Scheduled international passenger flights were suspended in India on March 23, 2020, due to the COVID pandemic. India's aviation watchdog Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has since extended the ban several times.
