New Delhi: IndiGo will send eight flights to Hungary, Poland, and Romania on Thursday to evacuate Indians stranded in Ukraine following the Russian military offensive.
India is evacuating its citizens stranded in Ukraine from its neighbouring countries such as Romania, Hungary, and Poland as the Ukrainian airspace has been shut down since February 24.
