Union Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri on Thursday said that the Vande Bharat Mission has so far facilitated the repatriation and international travel of more than 29.23 lakh stranded people.

In a tweet, the Minister said that on Wednesday 5,362 Indians returned under the Vande Bharat Mission.

“We reached out to our citizens in an hour of need through VBM,” he tweeted.

In another tweet, Puri said that domestic civil aviation operations continue on a steady growth trajectory.

So far over 1.70 lakh passengers have flown on 1,704 domestic flights since their resumption in May.

Last month, Puri told the Rajya Sabha that by Diwali and towards the end of the year, India would have pre-Covid aviation figures of 3 lakh passengers a day.
