MOFA unable to arrange charter flight for Taiwanese out of India

Taipei: Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Sunday it has been unable to arrange a charter flight before the end of May for Taiwanese nationals who want to leave India and urged those still in the country to book commercial flights if they wish to return.

In a statement, MOFA said it was working with the Friendship Tour travel agency to provide a charter flight before May 30, but the airline it was working with was unable to provide charter services due to difficulties in scheduling a crew.

The ministry is likely referring to China Airlines (CAL), one of Taiwan's largest carriers.

Twelve of the carrier's pilots have been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past two weeks, and many other pilots are now required to stay in quarantine longer than usual between assignments.
