Travelers can now avail direct air services between Goa and London. Notably, national carrier Air India has started direct flight services between the two cities on a weekly basis. However, it will soon turn into a bi-weekly service from November under the Air Bubble agreement
“Important day for Goa International Airport. Today Air India starts its direct flight LHR-GOI-LHR, B787. Initially once a week then twice a week from November under Air Bubble. Goa connects to London directly now,” a tweet by the official handle of Goa Airport read.
Scheduled international passenger flights have been suspended in India since March 23 due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, special international flights have been allowed under the Vande Bharat mission and the bilateral air bubble pacts formed by India with around 18 countries, including Ukraine and Bangladesh.
