Recently, Air India had also announced new services between Qatar and cities in India.
The air bubble agreement between Qatar and India has been extended to August. An announcement was made on Indian Embassy's official Twitter handle that flights have resumed under this arrangement.
The agreement had expired on July 31. India had stopped international flights after the spread of COVID-19 and operated flights to different countries on Air Bubble agreements.
Indian budget carrier GoAir has renamed itself as Go First in its pursuit to become the country’s first ultra-low-cost carrier. The name change also came ahead of the airline starting the process to go public and raise fresh funds.
