    Why India is resisting Chinas request to resume direct flights

    China is urging India to restart direct passenger flights, which have been suspended for four years due to a border dispute. Tensions rose following a deadly military clash in June 2020, leading India to restrict Chinese investments, ban apps, and halt flights, though cargo flights continue. Despite economic benefits for both countries, especially Chinas slow recovery in international travel post-COVID-19 compared to Indias booming aviation sector, India remains hesitant. A senior Indian official emphasized that border peace is a prerequisite for resuming flights.
