To further widen our international civil aviation operations, an air bubble arrangement is now in place between India & Bangladesh. Carriers of India & Bangladesh will operate 28 flights (per week) each between the two countries. Number of such arrangements now reaches 18.

As against Indian carriers operating 3-4 flights a week, Lufthansa operated 20 flights a week. In spite of this disparity we offered to clear 7 flights a week for Lufthansa which was not accepted by them. Negotiations continue. (3/3)

However, there are restrictions in place for Indian nationals desiring to travel to Germany which was putting Indian carriers at a significant disadvantage resulting in inequitable distribution of traffic in favour of Lufthansa. (2/3)

India formalised an air bubble with Germany in July 2020. An air bubble arrangement allows nationals of both countries to travel in either direction. (1/3)

Some Hon'bl members enquired  during RS session today as to why the regulator had not imposed fines on operators despite finding deficiencies in the past. I want to inform my esteemed colleagues that power to impose penalties vested with Hon'ble courts before today's amendment.

In the amended Aircraft Bill as passed by Rajya Sabha today, the maximum penalty for any act in contravention of the provisions of the Rule has been enhanced from ₹10 lakhs to ₹1 crore.  Further, the regulator has been empowered to impose the penalty.
