New Delhi: Bookings are now open as Air India is all set to start its largest repatriation operation starting May 7 to 13. With a total of 64 flights, it will fly to various international destinations to evacuate Indian citizens that have been stranded in other countries amid COVID-19 lockdown.

Bookings are also open for eligible foreign nationals with valid visa holders of the UK, the US and Singapore outbound flights which will be operated between May 7 and May 13 under the ‘Vande Bharat’ mission. Air India will start the evacuation procedures from Delhi-Singapore flight at 11 pm on Thursday from IGI Airport. The flight will then return to Delhi at 7 am the next day, that is, Friday morning.

Air India Express will operate Cochin- Abu Dhabi – Cochin and Kozhikode - Dubai – Kozhikode services. These will be the first of the 64 ferry services that will operate by the two airlines from May 7 to 13.
