While the first flight sent on Wednesday brought back 360 Indians, on Thursday the second flight saved 246 Indians from the fighting in Sudan and safely brought them back to Mumbai from Saudi Arabia's Jeddah. The aircraft carrier used in Operation Kaveri is the Indian Air Force's C-17 Globemaster heavy lift aircraft. In addition to this, two C-130J medium lift aircraft of the IAF have been stationed in Saudi Arabia.

Along with sharing pictures of the evacuation, external affairs minister S Jaishankar expressed his happiness on Twitter by tweeting "Another #OperationKaveri flight comes to Mumbai. 246 more Indians come back to the motherland". Union Minister of State for External Affairs V. Muraleedharan, who is overseeing the rescue operations in Jeddah, tweeted, “Our efforts to speedily bring back Indians from Jeddah are paying off” minutes before the flight left for Operation Kaveri.

 

Not only the Indian air force but also the Indian Navy is working relentlessly to bring back the Indian nationals to their motherland. While on Thursday, INS Teg evacuated 297 Indians from Port Sudan to Jeddah, INS Sumedha had already brought back 278 Indians on Wednesday. Naval warships are stationed to execute swift military maneuvers over the Red Sea to carry the Indians arriving in Port Sudan to Jeddah.
