First chartered flight from Doha operated by KCF Qatar arrives in Mangaluru

Doha: Despite the government of India is making all its efforts to repatriate Indians who stranded due to the cancellation of regular flights in view of the Covid-19, only one flight under Vande Bharat Mission was flown to Mangaluru till now. Due to the fact that there were no upcoming schedules from Doha to Mangaluru, Karnataka Cultural Foundation (KCF) took the initiative to charter flight, which has arrived in Mangalore International Airport on Thursday, July 16, becoming a major support for hundreds of Kannadigas in distress.
This KCF operated flight left the Hamad International Airport Doha at 9:35 am and reached Mangaluru international Airport at 16:10 pm on Thursday. The flight had over 174 NRI's, included pregnant women, patients in need of urgent medical treatment, senior citizens, and those who were stuck with expired visit visa and job loss. With the timely intervention Dr Arathi Krishna has helped a patient to make his approval from embassy, who had to leave for medical treatment on emergency basis.
Starting from the registration of travellers, KCF has provided all with the necessary documental, health-related information and each of them have been met by KCF representatives along with snacks and PPE kit to be worn during the journey as a precaution against the spread of the pandemic. Organization workers were constantly in touch with each of its passengers, supporting them for their safety and serve them during journey and stay at the hotels and this will continue until the quarantine is completed.
KCF, the proud organization of Kannadigas has been working in the public sphere, and this initiative of charter flight and their dedication on this have been praised by travellers.
