Real Life “Dunki”: Alleged “Donkey” Flight, Held in France, Lands In Mumbai with 303 Indian Passengers On Board


Mumbai: An Airbus A340 arrived in Mumbai on Tuesday. The flight was carrying 303 passengers primarily of Indian nationality, after a four-day delay in France due to suspected human trafficking allegations, which led to a prolonged detention of the aircraft.

The aircraft was headed to Nicaragua but was grounded “on a technical halt” last week by authorities at the Vatry airport approximately 160 km from Paris in France. The flight was headed from Dubai to Nicaragua. Authorities grounded the flight following a tip-off suggesting that the passengers on board were “likely to be victims of human trafficking.”

Earlier on Monday, the Indian Embassy in France thanked the French government and the Vatry Airport authorities for their hospitality and quick resolution of the situation that allowed Indian passengers to return home.

The embassy also hailed the cooperation of French authorities for working closely with the embassy team and ensuring the safe return of citizens.

Taking to X, the Indian Embassy in France said, “Thank French Gov and Vatry Airport for quick resolution of the situation enabling Indian passengers to return home & hospitality. Also for working closely with embassy team, present throughout at the site to ensure welfare and smooth & safe return. Thank agencies in India, too.”

The Indian Embassy in France also thanked the French authorities for working through the long holiday weekend.

“Continue to work with French Gov for the welfare of the Indians currently at the Varty airport, 150 km East of Paris, & for early resolution of the situation. Embassy consular staff stationed there. Thank French authorities for working on this through the long holiday weekend,” the Indian Embassy in France said in the post.
