Updated Information Regarding Flights To/From India
Due to the shutdown of many borders and airlines unable to fly, many people have been stuck in a visiting country. For those who are trying to get back to India from the US or come back from India into the US, it has been challenging finding seats. At this time, some airlines have flights available in their system and are allowing passengers to book those flights (for example – KLM/LH, Qatar).
These flights will only fly if the Indian government lifts the ban. However, if the ban is not lifted by the flight date, then some carriers will give a refund which may take about 15 -21 business days to process. However, some carriers are taking a longer time, which can be between 1 month to 4 months to process.
Also, and very important to note, all the carriers that typically fly to/from India are waiting for the go-ahead from the Indian government to start operating their flights. As soon as the ban is lifted, all of these airlines should be flying to India very quickly and there should be plenty of space both to/from India.
If you need help with flights between US and India, please call our office and talk to our agents who can give you the latest information. Currently, only Indian citizens and OCI card holders are being allowed back to India. We are suggesting that you may want to wait to book flights until the ban is lifted because we don’t know if/when you will get your money back for cancelled flights.
