Governments across the globe have operated special charters to bring their distressed citizens back home since a considerable portion of global commercial air travel had come to a screeching halt.

The evacuation of Indian nationals from Bangladesh started on May 8.

It said the airline will fly 31 flights from the U.S. and 19 flights from the UK. Earlier, a previous document of Air India had said that it will operate a total of 170 flights to and from 17 countries.

A batch of 169 Indians left the Hazrat Shahjalal airport at Dhaka for Delhi around noon time on Saturday under the Vande Bharat Mission to evacuate stranded people from overseas.

The news was confirmed by Air India through a tweet.

Indian Government In Hot Water over Repatriation Flights

In the first three phases of the Vande Bharat Mission, around 875 worldwide flights were scheduled for operation from over 50 countries across 5 continents.

Furthermore, the DOT stated that USA airlines were denied permission to operate these repatriation charters, referencing a Delta Air Lines letter sent to the Indian government dated May 26, 2020. No flights from Saudi Arabia figures in this schedule.

The new UAE guidelines will be applicable to all foreign carriers which are operating repatriation flights from the UAE.

Currently, Air India is seeking Dubai's permission to carry on with the repatriation flights given the huge demand for the India-UAE route.

"In order to continue with our efforts, phase four of Vande Bharat Mission has been firmed up with effect from July 3". Air India will function 495 chartered flights within the third part of the mission ranging from June 10 to July 4. The Indian government has extended the suspension of global travel until July 15, so it is likely that there may be a resumption of flights at least between the United States and India within the coming weeks.
