The Indian embassy in Ukraine in a tweet said that it was aware of the reports of people not getting flights. However, it asked Indians living there not to panic as more flights were being planned.
The embassy did not specify when the additional flights would be made operational. It said details would be shared by the embassy “as and when confirmed”.
“Embassy of India has been receiving several appeals about non-availability of flights from Ukraine to India. In this regard, students are advised not to resort to panic, but book the earliest available and convenient flights to travel to India,” the embassy tweeted.
“At present, Ukrainian International Airlines, Air Arabia, Fly Dubai, Qatar Airways etc are operating flights,” it said. The embassy said “more flights are being planned in the near future”, including from Air India and Ukrainian International Airlines. Control rooms are being established in the Indian embassy in Kyiv and in the external affairs ministry to respond to queries of Indians in Ukraine and their families in India.
