The Government ran 66 charter flights to bring home nearly 18,000 passengers from India, after sifting out multiple registrations made by some individuals and those who were not eligible. Since then we have supported commercial airlines to run regular return flights. The Government submitted a full response to the Foreign Affairs Committee's report into the FCDO's consular response to COVID-19 on 23 October.
