A Saudi Arabian Airlines Flight from Maldives to Singapore believed to be carrying President Gotabaya Rajapaksa was the world’s most-tracked flight on Thursday (14), underscoring massive global interest in the troubled island nation’s political affairs, the Bloomberg reported.
Saudia Flight 788 from Male was being tracked by almost 5,000 users as of 7.43 AM GMT, according to data from Flightradar24.com, more than three times the number of people tracking a French Air Force Flight flying in Europe.
Gotabaya is taking a Saudi Arabian Airlines Flight to Singapore and then to Saudi Arabia, the Associated Press reported, citing a Maldivian Official it did not name.
The Flight, a Boeing Co. 787 Dreamliner is scheduled to land in Singapore at about 7.12 PM, according to Flightradar24 data.
Gotabaya fled Sri Lanka for the Maldives on Wednesday (13), amid widespread protests against his Government.
He is expected to tender his resignation letter once at his destination, after missing a self-declared deadline Wednesday.
