A total of 139 Indian nationals stranded in Brunei Darussalam boarded a Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) chartered flight to Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India yesterday.

Indian High Commissioner to Brunei Darussalam Ajaneesh Kumar and other officials bade the passengers a safe trip home.

The Indian High Commission in Brunei Darussalam organised the chartered flight for the group, among them Indian nationals who were on brief visits or had completed their contracts but could not return on the earlier chartered flights.

The Indian Associations in Brunei and their regional partner organisations assisted passengers in fulfilling mandatory requirements to ensure their smooth passage to reach their destinations in India.

To date, 1,385 passengers have been repatriated on 10 chartered flights since July 2020.
