One of the flights carrying Indian nationals evacuated from northeastern Ukrainian city Sumy landed in Delhi on Friday morning, informed officials.
They said that the Air India flight that took off from Poland’s Rzeszow at around 11.30 pm Indian time on Thursday, landed in Delhi at 5.45 am today.
The operation to evacuate the 600 students from Sumy began on Tuesday morning.
India had sent three flights to Poland to bring back over 600 students who were evacuated from Sumy following Russia’s announcement of ‘humanitarian corridors’.
Officials further said that another flight was expected to land in Delhi at around 8.40 am.
The first flight carried students from first, second, and third year, the second flight is carrying students from fourth and fifth year while the third flight will carry fifth and sixth year students, those with pets and anyone left behind, reported PTI quoting students who arrived.
The government of India ran an extensive evacuation mission named Operation Ganga to bring back Indian nationals, mostly students, stranded in Ukraine amid Russia’s invasion of the country.
