Vande Bharat flight from Kuwait to reach on August 29


Trichy: After a long wait, a Vande Bharat mission flight from Kuwait carrying people who were stranded in Kuwait due to the lockdown will arrive at Trichy on August 29.

The Centre has scheduled the flight after repeated appeals made by the stranded people. More than 20,000 Tamils are stranded in Kuwait, particularly those hailing from the central region.
Trichy International airport had so far handled 139 services to bring 23,205 citizens, mostly Tamils stranded in several countries. But, no flights were operated from Kuwait so far under the mission. Thousands of Tamils who were stranded in the country expect more rescue flights to Trichy.

It may be noted that both Air India Express and IndiGo are operating 12 services to Indian cities including Chennai, Delhi, Vijayawada, Bhubaneshwar, Jaipur, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad from Kuwait. Meanwhile, 2,719 stranded Tamils had flown to Trichy by 19 chartered flights so far.
