The Indian government, in cooperation with Omani authorities and Embassy of India in Muscat, has decided to add two more flights to the 42 already announced under Phase 5 of its Vande Bharat Mission.
The Indian Embassy had previously announced, in two installments, 19 and 23 flights under Phase 5 of VBM, which started on August 8.
The two new flights are for Trivandrum, on August 27, and for Bengaluru/ Mangalore on August 28.
As in the case of flights operated earlier under Vande Bharat Mission, passenger lists for all the flights will be finalised by the Indian Embassy on the basis of information received by it. The embassy will be floating an online form for seeking confirmation of passengers to travel on a particular flight and then share the list of registered people with Air India.
All such people will be contacted by Air India directly for booking of tickets. The passengers, after registering on the online form, may also approach Air India offices in Ruwi and Wattayah (National Travels, General Sales Agent of Air India) directly to book tickets on first come first served basis. However, priority will be given to medical emergency cases, pregnant women, workers in distress, senior citizens as well as to Indian nationals who are stranded in difficult situations.
The cost of tickets will have to be borne by the passengers themselves. 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 the flight.
