203 flights take 36,000 Indians back home

12 Jul 2020

More than 36,000 Indians have left Oman in 75 special flights organised by the Indian Embassy in Oman and 128 chartered flights arranged by private and social organisations. 

Till July 11, the Indian embassy had arranged departure of 12,500 passengers in 71 flights, while four more flights departed on July 12 with over 500 passengers. In addition to special flights by Indian Embassy, run under Vande Bharat Mission, 128 chartered flights have carried approximately 23,000 Indians to their homes across India. 

Meanwhile, the Indian government in cooperation with the Omani authorities and the Embassy of India in Muscat, announced the addition of 20 more flights to India from Oman as part of Phase 4 of Vande Bharat Mission. 

As in the case of flights operated earlier under Vande Bharat Mission, passenger lists for all the flights will be finalised 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 other Indian nationals who are stranded in difficult situations. 

The embassy will be contacting the short-listed people for each flight directly through online web form/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 shortlisted persons. All passengers are required to confirm acceptance of all conditions of travel, including quarantine requirements in India as well as health requirements, in order to board a flight.
