Mumbai: An Air India plane, carrying about 300 stranded passengers from strife-torn Egypt, landed at the CST Airport on Monday.
The Boeing 747-800 was flown to Cairo on Sunday as a special measure to airlift the Indians stranded there amid nationwide unrest against the Hosni Mubarak government.
Air India has also decided to send its Mumbai-Jeddah flight further to Cairo to pick up more Indians stuck in the Egyptian capital that has been rocked by violent protests for a week now, airport sources said.
According to current estimates, there are about 600 Indian nationals , including tourists, who are to be transported back.
