Indian citizens who do not have transit or regular Schengen visas are unable to fly to the United Kingdom on European Union airlines such as Lufthansa, KLM, and Air France because they are stopped at India’s origin airports.
Because the United Kingdom is no longer a member of the European Union, it has made it essential for non-EU citizens to obtain a transit Schengen visa in order to fly to the UK on one of its airlines’ transit flights.
A Schengen visa is a short-term visa that permits its holder to travel freely inside the Schengen area, which consists of 26 EU countries known as “Schengen States” that share no border controls.
This restriction came into effect last year, on January 1st.
Non-EU citizens can only fly to the UK without a transit or regular Schengen visa by taking non-stop or one-stop flights through the Gulf or Switzerland. Because Switzerland is not a member of the EU, the rule does not apply to country.
There are, however, a number of flights that fly directly to the United Kingdom.
Foreign airlines have begun offering one-stop connections between India and the rest of the world since India restarted scheduled international flights.
Following the crisis between Russia and Ukraine, this one-stop shop has grown significantly.
Air India announced nonstop flights between India and the United Kingdom last year.
