AI flight to evacuate Indians recalled mid-way as Ukraine fighting intensifies
The Air India plane had left the Delhi IGI airport at 7:50 am for Boryspil International Airport in Kyiv. However, it turned back before landing due to Ukraine issuing NOTAM (Notice to Air Missions) and closing its airspace to civilian flights following bomb attacks on its cities by rebels backed by Russian troops and weapons. This was the third trip to evacuate Indians from Kyiv. Thousands of Indians, including a large number of students, are waiting to fly back home from Ukraine

NEW DELHI, Feb 24: The Air India flight AI-1947 that left Delhi in the morning on Thursday for Kyiv to evacuate Indians was recalled mid-way as Ukraine closed its airspace to civilian flights following bomb attacks on its cities by separatists backed by Russian troops and weapons providing supporting fire.

The plane had left Delhi airport at around 7:50 am for Boryspil International Airport in Kyiv. It was expected to arrive there in six hours. However, it turned back before landing due to Ukraine issuing NOTAM (Notice to Air Missions). The flight was expected to land in Delhi at 12.30 pm.

Earlier, a special Air India flight, Boeing 787 aircraft, from Ukraine carrying 242 Indians, including a large number of students, left Ukraine's Capital at 6 pm on Tuesday and reached Delhi around midnight. On Thursday morning a second Air India flight had brought in 182 Indian nationals to the IGI Airport.

Thousands of Indians are waiting to fly back home from Ukraine amid intense fighting between Ukrainian forces and rebels supported by Russian troops who started moving in on Wednesday.
