India likely to extend ban on flights from the UK - minister

BENGALURU (Reuters) - India’s Civil Aviation Minister on Tuesday said the country was likely to extend a ban on flights from Britain that it has imposed in a bid to contain a new strain of the coronavirus.

“I foresee a slight extension of the temporary suspension. I don’t expect that extension to be a long or indefinite extension,” Hardeep Singh Puri told reporters.

India last week suspended all flights from Britain until the end of the month.
