Two charter flights bring 400 to Hyderabad

Hyderabad: A private charter flight from New York with 250 Indian nationals, stuck in the US due to the lockdown, landed at Hyderabad airport late on Thursday night.
The flight was organised by US-India Solidarity Mission on the request of stranded Indians and OCI card holders from USA. Organisers said the flight was approved by the Indian Embassy under the recent guidelines of MEA.
A passenger said the flight was organised well. Organisers said they had arranged three flights from New York, Chicago and Dallas. The flights, which departed on June 24, were operated by Qatar Airways. Another charter flight also landed in the city from Qatar with 153 Indians from the state, who were stuck there since the Covid-19 outbreak. According to Nandini Abbagouni of Telangana Jagruthi (Qatar), several Telugu associations and the ICBF Qatar helped the stranded get back home. The workers had either been removed from their jobs, had health issues or their visas had expired.
