The COVID-19 pandemic completely transformed the way the world works. Many countries worldwide were hit hard by its successive waves, disrupting even the smallest everyday activities. India was one of the countries that were considerably affected by the pandemic, resulting in strict lockdowns and curfew restrictions throughout. One of the first major actions taken by the authorities to keep the situation under control was to ban scheduled flights, especially those flying in and out of India. This put a major cinch in the international travel plans of those living in India.

With the effects of the pandemic now rapidly receding, regular international flights from India have finally resumed after a gap of two long years. 6 Indian and 60 international airlines have started operating a total of 3,249 weekly flights between India and a myriad of international destinations. This increase in flight connectivity is expected to result in a significant fall in the cost of flight tickets, making it an excellent chance for you to plan a trip abroad. So, here are the top international destinations open for Indians you can choose to visit.
