More flights scheduled to bring back stranded Sri Lankans

The Government has finally scheduled a slew of flights to bring back Sri Lankan migrants stranded abroad, after initially cancelling some flights and resisting repatriation as a large number of West Asian workers are now feared to be infected with COVID-19, Sunday Times Newspaper reported.

Flights were scheduled to arrive from the Maldives, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Oman, Lebanon, Madagascar, Pakistan, Seychelles, South Korea and Qatar starting on Saturday. However, it will require many more trips before everyone who has registered to return is brought back.

Meanwhile many Sri Lankans who are stranded abroad are urging the Government to make urgent arrangements bring them back.
