Second Plane Carrying Spanish Evacuees from Nepal Reaches New Delhi

NEW DELHI – An Airbus 310 of the Spanish Armed Forces, FFAA, carrying a second group of Spaniards evacuated from Kathmandu following the devastating earthquake in Nepal on Saturday, landed in New Delhi on Tuesday, said the Embassy of Spain in India.

“Spain Embassy in India informed that an FFAA aircraft has just landed in Delhi with a second group of Spanish evacuees,” the embassy tweeted early on Tuesday morning.

Although no further details were provided, Spanish diplomatic sources said on Monday that 78 Spaniards, including a baby, were ready to be evacuated from Kathmandu.

The first 37 Spanish evacuees arrived in New Delhi Monday night on a commercial flight belonging to Spice Jet.

According to Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo, another Spice Jet flight is expected to reach New Delhi Tuesday morning carrying between 70 and 80 Spaniards, to conclude Spain’s evacuation of nationals.

Between 50 and 52 Spaniards, including Garcia-Margallo, will return to Spain in the Airbus 310, while others will be repatriated to Spain in a plane chartered by the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation.

“The news is good,” said Garcia-Margallo, on an official visit to India, adding that as other Spaniards are located with the restoration of communications, they will be repatriated on commercial flights.

On Saturday an earthquake of 7.8 magnitude devastated Nepal.

According to official figures released Tuesday morning, at least 4,266 people are dead, 7,598 injured, and thousands more homeless and sheltered in makeshift camps.
