Air India to operate third flight to Cairo

National carrier Air India today said it will operate a third flight to airlift Indian citizens caught in the violent unrest in Cairo over the demand for ouster of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
"We are dispatching a jumbo aircraft (Boeing 747) from Mumbai to Cairo this afternoon to ferry some more Indians stuck in the strife-hit African country," an AI official told PTI here.

The flight is expected to take off around 2.30 pm and will be operated as a special commercial flight in its return leg, the official said.
The flag carrier has already transported 534 people back home, including 46 children and two infants, in two flights which it operated as a special measure to airlift Indians stranded in Cairo in the last two days.
