Mexico City, Mexico — Nearly 300 Mexican nationals who were left stranded in Argentina after border closures and commercial flight restrictions, have returned home.
The group of Mexicans landed in Mexico City after elements from the Secretarías de la Defensa Nacional (Sedena) and Relaciones Exteriores (SRE) repatriated 280 Mexican nationals from Argentina. All 280 were returned to Mexican soil on two Sedena flights, both of which underwent biosecurity and hygiene regulations.
After 12 hours of flying, which included a stopover in Ecuador, the 280 Mexicans stranded in different cities of Argentina arrived in Mexico City from Buenos Aires. Some of those on board had been stranded in Argentina since March 8.
The stranded Mexicans were returned home after humanitarian flights on Monday, left with 300 Argentinians who were stranded in various parts of Mexico.
