The Russian tour operator Tui, as well as the Royal Flight airline, has applied to the Indian Ministry of Civil Aviation and the Indian Airports Authority for permission to resume charter flights to the famous Indian resort of Goa from October 26.
Royal Flight has requested 169 slots since October 26, and Tui is requesting three to five slots per week.
The Indian authorities will make a decision on the slots in the near future, although India has not yet allowed international flights.
At the same time, Russia itself has not yet opened its borders with India and has not announced the resumption of air communication with this country, but such an active preparation of airlines and tour operators shows that such a decision is quite likely.
