Embassy lists 51 repatriation flights to India from Qatar in coming weeks

Embassy of India has published a list of 51 flights from Qatar to India this month.

The embassy said on its twitter that flights will be available from July 7-23 to  Lucknow, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai, Bengaluru, Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi, Kannur and Kozhikode.

These flights are part 1 of the Phase-4 of Vande Bharat Mission (VBM) flights to repatriate Indian citizens from around the world. All the 51 flights are operated by IndiGo, an Indian budget airline.

“Please book seats on these flights directly online, with your EOID number,” Embassy said in a tweet.

EOID number is given to people who register on the embassy website for repatriation.

“Please also note that you are not permitted to take domestic connecting flights in conjunction with these VBM flights, unless you complete the mandatory quarantine period at the first point of arrival in India. You may end up having to cancel them and losing money if you do so,” embassy added.

Earlier Indian Ministry of external affairs had announced 193 flights from Qatar on their website. It was later modified to 51 flights.
