The relief flight of Myanmar National Airlines landed at the Yangon International Airport yesterday afternoon, carrying 95 Myanmar citizens stranded in India due to suspension of international flights.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs arranged the flight between New Delhi and Yangon in coordination with Myanmar embassy in the capital of India and relevant ministries of Myanmar under the directives of National-Level Central Committee on Prevention, Control and Treatment of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
On arrival at the airport, officials from the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population, the Ministry of Health and Sports, and the Yangon Region government helped for their 21-day quarantine period at the designated places and the respective hotels in line with the regulations of immigration and medical checks.
The MNA will also fly to Chennai on 24 May and to Gaya on 27 May to bring back Myanmar citizens from India.—MNA (Translated by Aung Khin)
