Flights from India to China's Wuhan all set to resume operation

As per a recent development, India’s national carrier is all set to operate flights to Wuhan on October 30. This will be the first flight operation to the central Chinese city, which was the trigger spot of Coronavirus. Wuhan is where the virus reportedly emerged in December and then spread across the world. The place was officially declared COVID-free in June, and all restrictions had also been relaxed.

The Indian Embassy recently announced that a Vande Bharat Mission (VBM) flight would be operated from Delhi to Wuhan on October 30. As per this development, this will be the sixth VBM flight by Air India to China to facilitate travel for Indians stranded in both countries. The press release issued by the Indian Embassy further added that taking flights would be made available on payment basis as per the fares decided by the airline.

These flights will facilitate travel for those Indians who have valid work visas to return to China and bring back those wanting to return home.
