First flight from Bahrain lands at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport

Hyderabad: The first special evacuation flight from Bahrain landed at Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport on Tuesday evening, with 175 passengers on board — 174 adults and one infant. The Air India Express flight, IX 890, operated under phase 2 of the Vande Bharat Mission, reached Hyderabad at 8.31 pm. All passengers were escorted out of the facility — to paid quarantine centres in the city — through a fully sanitised arrivals international terminal, an airport source said.

While the flight came as a huge relief to many Indians, several Bahrain nationals from Hyderabad appealed to authorities to provide a return flight to their country. “Why are there no flights from Hyderabad to Bahrain? Aren’t there any Bahraini residents in Hyderabad wishing to travel to Bahrain? Though there is a flight coming back to Hyderabad from Bahrain. Only flights from Mumbai and Thiruvananthapuram,” wrote Gazala Fatima while many said they struggled to get passes, to travel to Mumbai, to board the flight back home.
