India has now entered into an air travel bubble with Russia
According to the new air bubble between the two countries, air carriers of both these countries are permitted to operate flights to and from them. Even though India had banned international flights in March last year, there has been a growing number of air travel bubbles between the country and other nations.
It is important to understand the categories of persons allowed to travel, and the rules that are in play for such an air travel bubble.
If you are flying from India to Russia, you must be a stranded national, or resident of Russia. The other possibility is that Indian nationals, or nationals of Nepal, or Bhutan with valid visa of Russia will be permitted to fly. However, the airlines need to ensure that there are no restrictions to travel for such India, Nepales, or Bhutanese citizens to enter the country. This should be looked into during the booking process, or issuing of boarding passes.
Moscow to Delhi flights by Russian carrier Aeroflot is operational on Sundays, and Fridays. The return flights will be available on Saturdays, and Mondays each week.
