Air India Opens Bookings for Vande Bharat Mission

Air India opened bookings for around 300 flights to various countries like the USA, the UK under the phase-3 of Vande Bharat Mission that resulted in an enormous response from travelers as the national carrier received six crore hits on their website in first two hours of opening the bookings.


However, many of the travelers complained that Air India’s website didn’t function properly in the first few hours of the bookings and by the time it started working, almost all flights were booked. The national carrier opened its bookings at 5 PM and it posted the following on Twitter at 6.08 PM on Friday: "Demand for seats from India on flights planned under Mission Vande Bharat-3 is overwhelming. Sectors/ Flights are being opened in a systematic manner for booking, on the website." Following this, many people complained about the website getting crashed and being very slow.


While scheduled domestic passenger flights resumed on May 25 after a gap of two months, however, scheduled international passenger flights continue to remain suspended in India. Under the Vande Bharat Mission, Air India and its subsidiary Air India Express started operating international flights from May 7 onwards to repatriate stranded Indians from abroad. The first phase was from May 7 to May 16, following which the second phase began.


Between May 7 and June 1, the Air India group has operated a total of 423 inbound international flights under the mission, bringing 58,867 Indian citizens back to the country.

In the third phase, the bookings got opened from June 6 and got an overwhelming response but along with that people rushed with complaints of Air India’s website acting like a junkyard and working as if on the 2G system. However, with the complaints, it has received a huge response and thus helping stranded to reach their place.
