(According to Cricbuzz) There are franchises specifically Mumbai Indians who are planning to arrange chartered flights for their players. While a batch of South African players has already left, a couple of players such as Quinton De Kock and Marco Jansen are gonna fly through the chartered flight arranged by MI.
The major problem for BCCI is also to arrange a separate flight for 4 franchises that have players that positive in their squad. BCCI is trying its best to felicitate smooth returns for all of them.
पलटन, आम्ही जिंकलो किंवा हरलो…तुमचा सपोर्ट नेहमी आपल्या टीम बरोबर होता! त्यासाठी मनापासून आभार 💙
Win or lose, your constant support was always there with the team, Paltan! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

It is possible that MI players who are flying to New Zealand and West Indies may be joined by the players of other franchises as well. Talking about Australian players, CA is working closely to help Australian cricketers return home. For this according to some reports, BCCI has arranged a flight to the Maldives.
In the Maldives, the Australian cricketers are expected to undergo around 10 days of quarantine. After that, they may easily return to Australia. Now if we talk about the UK, the UK government has allowed the English Players to return back home directly. So, as a result, many of the English players have already reached home.

Although BCCI is facing various complications for sure BCCI is cooperating with the Cricket governing bodies of other countries. So that flights may be arranged as soon as possible. Earlier today many of the domestic players left for their homes via Ahmedabad airport.
