Air India flight with 112 French citizens stuck in Kerala due to lockdown, depart from Cochin airport

A special Air India flight from Kerala’s Kochi on Saturday morning, took a total of 112 French nationals, stuck in the state since the 21-day lockdown began to arrest the flow of Coronavirus pandemic.

The special Air India flight arrived from Bengaluru with passengers and  took off at  08:13 today from Cochin international airport. The flight will go to Mumbai and then depart for Paris, where more of them are waiting to travel to France.

Similar flights were operated to ferry German and Omani nationals from the state in the past few days. These people came  to the state either as tourists or for health checkups and ayurveda treatments and got stuck here due to the flights cancellation because of the lockdown.
Cochin airport officials expressed their intent that they are ready to do similar operations to fly out other nationals who are stuck in the state.
