Repatriation of Indian Citizens By Non-Scheduled Commercial Flights

Air India will be operating non-scheduled commercial flights in a phased manner to repatriate stranded Indian Citizens from the UK to various destinations in India. The flights for Phase 4 would begin from July 3rd. The flights will take off from London Heathrow Airport (LHR).

The flights would be made available on Payment-basis.  You may book your flight directly through Air India on Air India's website.

Medical screening of passengers would be done before taking the flight. Only asymptomatic passengers would be allowed to travel. During the journey, all passengers would have to follow the protocols, including the Health Protocols, issued by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Civil Aviation.  

On reaching the destination in India, everyone would be medically screened; all would have to register on the Aarogya Setu app. Everyone would be mandatorily quarantined for 14 days, either in a hospital or in an institutional quarantine on payment-basis, by the concerned State government.  COVID test would be done after 14 days and further action would be taken according to health protocols.

An undertaking to abide by the protocols framed by the Government of India and State Government would have to be given in this regard prior to boarding the aircraft.
