Mumbai (Agencies): Air India on Wednesday will operate its third flight to airlift Indian citizens caught in Egypt unrest over the demand for ouster of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

"We are dispatching a jumbo aircraft (Boeing 747) from Mumbai to Cairo on Wednesday afternoon to ferry some more Indians stuck in the strife-hit African country," an AI official said.

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.
