Melbourne, Nov 28: Australian national carrier Qantas has this afternoon dispatched a bigger aircraft to Mumbai, with the capability of airlifting about 297 Australians.

Qantas officials said this afternoon that the airline had yet to be asked to evacuate Australians from danger but had decided to put a bigger plane than normal on today's scheduled service. The airline normally operates a 235-seat A330-200 jet to Mumbai thrice a week.
