This is the fifth flight that the government would run as part of Operation Ajay to help Indians who want to return from Israel’s war-torn country do so.
Tuesday saw the arrival at the Delhi airport of a SpiceJet flight from Tel Aviv carrying 286 passengers, 18 of whom were citizens of Nepal.
This is the fifth trip that will be run as part of the government’s Operation Ajay to make it easier for Indians who want to return from Israel, where a fierce confrontation with the Islamist group Hamas is taking place, to do so.
Arindam Bagchi, a spokesperson for the External Affairs Ministry, wrote on the social media site X that 286 people, including 18 citizens of Nepal, boarded the fifth flight of Operation Ajay.
Additionally, he posted images of L Murugan, a minister of state for information and broadcasting, greeting travelers at the airport.
The state of Kerala was represented by 22 passengers who came on the trip, according to the government of Kerala.
The SpiceJet A340 suffered a mechanical fault on Sunday after touching down in Tel Aviv, and the plane was flown to Jordan to fix it.
Tuesday saw the return of the Tel Aviv-bound aircraft after the problem was resolved.
On Monday morning, the plane was supposed to land back in the nation’s capital.
