Booking Air Tickets under Vande Bharat Mission (Repatriation Flights)

Exploring India’s Hidden Gems: Destinations You Can Fly to with IRCTC Air

A commendable initiative launched by the Central Government of India on May 7, 2020, Mission Vande Bharat aims at bringing back stranded Indians from foreign countries. The Covid-19 pandemic is a time of crisis for the entire world but it is especially hard for those who are not with their families or in the comfort & safety of their home. In an attempt to contain the spread of coronavirus, international flights were banned during the last week of March which prevented millions of Indians from returning to their homeland. Luckily, the government’s Mission Vande Bharat by Air India & Air India Express came to their rescue. According to the Ministry of External Affairs, over 7.88 lakh Indians have managed to return home under this mission till July 22. After successfully completing its first four phases, Mission Vande Bharat is all set to start phase five from 1st August onwards. Air India, Air India Express along with a few more associative carriers will be running flights to the USA, Canada, Qatar, Oman, UAE, Australia, Germany, Thailand, Singapore, UK, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, New Zealand, and the Philippines among other countries.
