Four more flights to operate between India-Ukraine amid growing crisis

The Indian High Commission in Ukraine claimed in a tweet that four more flights are operating from India to Ukraine amid rising tensions with Russia, raising fears over the safety of over 20,000 citizens.

The news:  Aside from this, three special Air India flights will operate between Tuesday and Saturday, the first of which took off early Tuesday morning.

  • The development comes after the Indian embassy recommended Indian students and other citizens whose stay in Kyiv was not required to leave the city temporarily last week, citing rising tensions between Ukraine and Russia. 

What they said: “Additional flights are being organised due to the sustained high level of tensions and uncertainty in the current scenario in Ukraine,” read the latest statement from the Indian Embassy.

  • Scheduled flights between India and Ukraine, operated by Air Arabia, Fly Dubai and Qatar Airways, among others, will continue to operate on the route, according to the embassy. 
  • Air India’s special ferry flight — a Dreamliner B-787 aircraft – departed for Boryspil International Airport in Ukraine on Tuesday morning. It will arrive in Delhi on Tuesday evening. Air India offices, website, contact centre and authorised travel agencies began taking reservations for the journey last week.
  • On Tuesday, India highlighted at a United Nations Security Council (UNSC) emergency meeting that the safety of more than 20,000 Indian students and nationals living in various parts of Ukraine is a key priority. 

Over 20,000 Indian students and nationalities live and study in Ukraine, including in the country’s border districts. TS Tirumurti, India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations stated, “The well-being of Indians is a priority for us.”
