India Flights Update

International flights to India

Regular international flights remain suspended. Only repatriation and “travel bubbles” flights from various countries are operating – although only foreigners meeting the visa criteria for entry are allowed onboard. All travelers eligible to enter India must submit a self-declaration form (SDF) on the Air Suvidha Portal at least 72 hours before the scheduled travel.

Transit through India

Transit in India is allowed. All passengers must mention clearly in the SDF that they plan to take a transit flight. Foreign nationals stuck in neighboring countries who wish to return to their country through India are allowed to transit.

Travel & flight hacking

9 most effective flight hacks for India

  1. Avoid Indian public holidays. Prices skyrocket during holidays in India – adjust your travel dates to avoid expensive tickets. Cheap flights to India are non-existent during popular “red days” and festivals such as Holi (Feb/March), Naga Panchami, Durga Puja, Navratri and Diwali (October/November). If you really have to travel to India during these peak periods it's wise to book the flights well in advance.
  2. Watch for a good sale. Most airlines publish their web promotions frequently. To get a great bargain be sure to watch the airline sales over the course of several weeks.
  3. Fly from South India to SE Asia. Most budget airlines that serve Southeast Asia (such as AirAsia, Scoot) operate from South India. If you are in North or West India, consider taking a domestic flight to South or East (Chennai, Bangalore, Kolkata) to get a significantly cheaper flight onward – to SE Asian destinations. The total flight costs are likely to be lower.
  4. Book a seat in a quiet zone. Some airlines (for example AirAsia X) start to offer child-free "quiet zones" for a peaceful flight experience. Children below 10 years old are not allowed in this section. Those seats are usually located in front of the plane (bonus: less noise from the engines) with soft ambient lighting and early meal service.
  5. Join Air Traveler Club. A proven way to get great prices on flights to India is to become a member of the Air Traveler Club. It is free to join, and deals that the members get every week are priced at least 40% below the average airfare for a given route. Some of these 'hacker fares' can save you up to 80% (!) on your next flight.
  6. Make use of loyalty programs. Choose an airline that suits you the best then stick to it. By becoming 'a regular' you will be able to make use of its loyalty program and earn "miles" (or points) – not only for flying but also for everyday expenses. Points earned this way often add up over time and this could give you a chance of significant price reductions on your next flights, special perks, or even free travel. If you often fly with Indian airlines, opt for Flying Returns by Air India, Club Vistara by Air Vistara, or SpiceClub by SpiceJet.
  7. See extra destinations for free. Though most people prefer direct routes, few others embrace layovers and take them as the perfect opportunity to visit an extra destination. Some airlines offer free layovers at their hub city which means you have an extra destination to visit without purchasing any extra ticket. For instance, Emirates offers a free stopover in Dubai. You can choose to drop in Tokyo for free with Japan Airlines or spend some time in Bangkok with Thai Airways.
  8. Carry your prescriptions. This one is important and will ensure that you get through Customs and Immigration smoothly. Some countries are very strict about medicines you carry along. In fact, many of the common OTC medicines that are available in one country may require a prescription in another. Make sure you take prescriptions along to avoid any hassle while traveling.
  9. DM instead of the call center. Use Twitter or Facebook Messenger to contact the airline customer service. If the problem arises, social media is usually a faster way to contact a real human that can answer your questions. Don't count too much on airline call centers, they are usually super busy.
