The Indonesian Embassy in Colombo said that 347 Indonesians were flown out of Sri Lanka and the Maldives.
Garuda Indonesia Airlines flew the Indonesians out of Colombo.
Recently another batch of Indonesians were flown out of Sri Lanka and the Maldives after the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak took a toll on their jobs.
Most workers had to return to Indonesia after companies and resorts ceased operations and were no longer in a position to pay the salaries of Indonesian migrant workers in full, the Indonesian Embassy noted in a statement.
At the request of several companies, resorts, and Indonesian workers residing in Sri Lanka and the Maldives, the Indonesian Embassy in Colombo collaborated with Hayleys Aviation as General Sales Agent (GSA) of Garuda Indonesia in Colombo to facilitate the repatriation process. (Colombo Gazette)
