After nearly two months of lockdown, India has begun to re-open its economy in a phased manner. With cities and districts being designated as green, amber and red zones depending on the scale of infection – restrictions are being eased gradually as people return to work. Domestic flights are scheduled to re-start operations in a calibrated manner from Monday, May 25th, 2020. Lufthansa will resume flights to India from next month and similarly other international airlines are expected to follow. Abercrombie & Kent re-opened its India offices on Monday, May 18th, 2020 and we look forward to welcoming you and your clients to our beautiful country. The health and safety of our travellers and team members is put at the heart of our new global protocols. Along with our hotel partners, tour guides, transporters, and guidelines from the World Health Organisation (WHO), we have put together health and safety protocols, and the same can be shared on request. The measures have been designed to rebuild confidence among travellers so they can travel safely once the restrictions are lifted. We are encouraged that the majority of our clients remain committed for late 2020 and 2021 onwards. That said, we recognize travel in a post-Covid world will have undergone a sea change. Our preferred hotel partners have been very supportive by offering us competitive prices along with flexible terms & conditions for deposits/ cancellations. With these measures in place, we are confident and ready to welcome your clients to India.
