British Airways – Air Bubble Approved – Fly from London to India (Delhi & Bombay)

British Airways will resume service to India from next week, with direct flights to four cities. Starting 17 August, BA will fly to Delhi and Mumbai five times a week and to Hyderabad and Bengaluru four times a week.

BA says these flights are part of the new bilateral agreement—or air bubble, as it is being called —between the UK and India. The airline says it will take all customers, eligible under the guidelines issued by India’s Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), nonstop to London… So who is eligible to fly?

Who can fly to India: Stranded Indian nationals, all Overseas Citizens of India (OCIs) holding British passports, and foreigners (including diplomats) holding a valid visa from any category, who are eligible to enter India as per Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) guidelines dated 30.06.2020.

Who can fly to the UK:

  • Any Indian national holding any type of valid UK visa and destined for the UK only.
  • Stranded UK nationals/residents, foreign nationals transiting through UK or spouses of these persons, whether accompanying or otherwise; and
  • Seamen of foreign nationalities; Seamen of Indian origin would be allowed subject to clearance from the Ministry of Shipping.

It is a time to end the Air India Vande Bharat Mission.

So if anyone has a valid VISA which expires after 3 months from the date of entry at both the port can now travel.
