Air India will operate its flight to Wuhan on October 30, the first after the central Chinese city from which the coronavirus first emerged in December was officially declared safe from the virus in June and all curbs were removed. A Vande Bharat Mission (VBM) flight would be operated from the Delhi-Wuhan sector on Oct.30, the Indian embassy here announced on Friday. This will be Air India’s sixth VBM flight to China to help Indians stranded in both countries return to their destinations.
The Delhi-Wuhan flight was announced after the cancellation of the 23 October flight between Delhi-Guangzhou. Those arriving from New Delhi must undergo a 14-day quarantine at designated hotels. The Indian Embassy press release here said the next VBM flight scheduled for October 23 has been postponed to October 30. The flight will now be operated on the Delhi-Wuhan-Delhi sector.
Travelers were asked to contact the helpdesk ([email protected]) for assistance or guidance. India operated three flights to Wuhan to transport Indians stranded in the city when the virus was at its peak in February of this year.
Air India has operated five VBM flights so far helping Indians stranded in both countries to return to their destinations.
