Vande Bharat Mission Phase 4: 1197 Flights Scheduled This Month in 29 Countries, 34 Airports in India, Says MEA

The Ministry of External Affairs on Thursday said that at least 1197 flights had been scheduled in Phase 4 of India’s Vande Bharat Mission to repatriate stranded Indians from abroad. Flights are being operated across 29 countries by Air India, Air India Express IndiGo, SpiceJet, as well as GoAir.
“In phase 4 of Vande Bharat Mission, 1197 flights have been scheduled so far, including 945 international flights & 252 feeder flights. These flights are operated by Air India group, IndiGo, SpiceJet & GoAir. They covered 29 countries. They’ll be reaching 34 airports in India,”  MEA spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said in a press briefing.
The central government has, however, not announced the dates or the schedule for Vande Bharat Mission phase 5 yet.
Notably, Air India reduced the airfares for high-demand flights to the US almost by half, in anticipations that more airlines are ready to join the international airspace in the coming days, facing steep competition with United Airlines.
