US arranging more flights for stranded Americans in India

With India extending world’s biggest lockout to contain coronavirus pandemic to May 3, US is arranging additional special chartered flights to fly its citizens and their families home despite a dwindling demand.

With many Americans undecided about returning to the US that has become the epicenter of covid-19 pandemic or staying put in India which has seen less than 400 fatalities, US authorities are asking them to make up their minds.

“We are working to arrange additional special chartered flights for US citizens and their families departing India,” the US embassy in India said in its latest Health Alert issued Wednesday.

The embassy advised US citizens to register their interest “If you are still interested in departing India on a US government-facilitated flight” as “there are no guarantees there will be additional flights.”

The US authorities have repatriated over 3,100 US citizens from India to the US in recent weeks.
