Last week, five pilots of Air India and a technician and a driver of the airline’s engineering wing tested positive for Covid-19 in Mumbai.

All the pilots operate Boeing 787 fleet and had flown to China before April 20.

The government will operate 149 flights from 31 countries, including the US, Australia and France, during the second phase of the evacuation from May 16.
