Two special flights to Kerala today

28 May 2020

In the second leg of Phase 2 of the Mission Vande Bharat, two flights to Calicut and Kannur in Kerala will be leaving today with stranded Indians from Oman.  

The Government of India decided to operate 15 more special flights to India from Oman in the second leg of Phase 2 of the Mission Vande Bharat. While out of 15, ten are scheduled to fly to cities in the state of Kerala, the other five include flights to Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Srinagar, Bhubaneshwar and Chennai.   

The second phase of flights starts from May 28 and ends on June 7.  

Air India Express flight IX 1350 will fly with 115 passengers plus three infants from Muscat, while IX1342 will fly from Salalah to Kannur.  

As in the case of flights operated earlier under Mission Vande Bharat, passenger lists for all the above-mentioned flights will be finalized by the embassy on the basis of information received by it. Priority will be given to medical emergency cases, pregnant women, workers in distress, senior citizens as well as to other Indian nationals who are stranded in difficult situations.  

The embassy will be contacting the short-listed people for each flight directly through email/telephone.

The embassy will then share the list of short-listed people with Air India and all such people will be contacted by Air India for booking of tickets.  

The cost of tickets will have to be borne by the passengers themselves and air tickets will be issued by the airline only to short listed persons.
