Air India flight brings back 240 Indians stranded in Ukraine

The first Air India flight ferrying Indian citizens stranded in Ukraine, amid the going tension, arrived at New Delhi’s IGI Airport on Tuesday night. 

The news: The Boeing 787 aircraft that left Ukraine’s capital Kyiv at 6 p.m., carrying 240 passengers, landed in Delhi at around midnight on Tuesday.

  • Thousands of Indians are waiting to fly back home from Ukraine amid rising tensions with Russia.
  • Recently President Vladimir Putin has recognised two separatist areas in Ukraine as independent nations.
  • Vistara CEO Vinod Kannan on Tuesday said it has no plans to operate flights to Ukraine. “At this time, we are not planning flights to Ukraine because of aircraft limitations and other reasons,” the leading news agency quoted him. 
  • Air India will be operating two more flights to Kyiv on February 24 and 26. Besides Air India, other Indian operators are expected to start special flight services to Ukraine.
  • Earlier, former foreign secretary Shashank said that the immediate priority for India is to make sure that about 20,000 Indian students in Ukraine remain safe and are out of “conflict zone” in case of any hostilities. 
  •  “We have two important roles. We have about 20,000 Indian students studying in Ukraine. We have to make sure that they remain safe, they are out of the conflict zone if there is a conflict. Second, they continue to get all kinds of consular support from the Indian mission and from the local government wherever they are living,” Shashank said.
