After the UAE, stranded Indians in Singapore were the next lot to get onto a repatriation flight back home. 234 Indians departed from Singapore on Friday morning aboard Air India flight AI381, and landed in Delhi. 

Indian High Commissioner Jawed Ashraf was himself present at the airport in Singapore to see off those boarding the flight. He also paid tribute to the pilots and crew of Air India undertaking this difficult mission. 

The Indian government has planned and put into action one of the largest ever evacuation missions as they attempt to bring home stranded citizens from across the world amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
