17 more charter flights from India to return thousands of stranded Brits


Details of the flights are as follows:

  • From Ahmedabad to London on 20, 22, 24, 26 April
  • From Amritsar to London on 21, 23, 25 and 27 April
  • From Bangalore (via Ahmedabad) to London on 23 April
  • From Delhi to London on 21, 23, 25 and 27 April
  • From Goa to London on 20, 22 and 24 April
  • From Mumbai to London on 26 April

People who are most vulnerable will be prioritised for seats on the flights, which will bring the total number chartered by the UK Government from India to 38.

Given the number of people who have already registered for a flight, the majority of seats are likely to be allocated to people who are already on waitlists, having registered via the CTM website.

Lord (Tariq) Ahmad of Wimbledon, Minister of State for South Asia and the Commonwealth, said:

We know this is a difficult time for British travellers and there is great demand for these flights.

This is a huge and logistically-complex operation, and we are working tirelessly with the Indian Government and state authorities to help more British travellers get home.

People who have already registered for the flights do not need to take any further action at this stage. If they have secured a seat, they will be contacted directly by CTM with
