COVID-19: India adds additional flights from Oman

Muscat: The government of India has decided to add more flights to India from Oman in the Vande Bharat Mission (Phase 3).

According to the Embassy, the government will operate special flights to Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Mangalore starting from June 27, 2020.

“As in the case of flights operated earlier under Vande Bharat Mission, 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 shortlisted 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,” a statement from the Embassy said.

The Embassy also said, “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 the flight.”
