AS pressure from Canadians still stranded in India continued to build up, Canadian High Commissioner in New Delhi, Nadir Patel, tweeted on Sunday (April 19): “We are aware of ongoing demand from Canadians in Punjab looking to return home, with Amritsar being the nearest airport for many. We are urgently working to finalize arrangements for a series of special flights from Amritsar to meet the demand; your patience is appreciated.”

On Monday, Patel tweeted: “The ninth special flight with stranded Canadians is on its way to Canada having left this morning from Amritsar and Delhi. More special flights taking place this week and next. Thanks to all that have helped make them happen during these unprecedented times”

Then on Wednesday, he announced: “The tenth special flight is in the air with Canadians returning home; departed Amritsar early this morning. More special flights taking place in the coming days.”

On Friday (April 24), Patel tweeted: “The 11th special flight for Canadians looking to return home departed for Canada early this morning from Amritsar. More special flights in the coming days from #Ahmedabad #Bangalore #Mumbai #Amritsar & #Delhi.”
