Goa flights to UK may start from April 4

Under the air bubble initiative, it is highly possible that Air India flights to UK will start again by April 4, if cleared by the Centre.

“We had a request for resumption of flights to UK and we have cleared the slots. The central government has not given the point of call for Goa to Air India, but they are expecting it soon and accordingly, they have requested us for slots that have been approved,” said Gagan Malik, Dabolim Airport Director.

“We will be under immense pressure because we have domestic flights during the day, but keeping the interest of Goa and Goans in mind, we have worked out a solution so that we can handle the international flights in between domestic flights and we have approved slots accordingly,” he added.  “Russia is comparatively safer and a certain protocol decided by both countries needs to be followed and we have already given the slots to Air India for these operations.”

So far, only two countries – Russia and UK-  have requested Goa airport for slots under the Air bubble programme.
