India eases restriction on airlines flying overseas | Reuters
NEW DELHI India on Wednesday eased a rule restricting when newer airlines can start flying overseas, Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju said.
Raju said on Twitter that airlines would no longer need to wait for the five years of operations earlier required before they can begin flying abroad, but must still have 20 jets in their fleet.
India's cabinet approved the new national civil aviation policy earlier on Wednesday.
