First flight from Bahrain arrives in Mangaluru International Airport

Mangaluru: Air India Express flight carrying 170 passengers under the Vande Bharat mission left Bahrain at 10 am and reached Mangaluru International airport at 4.45 pm on Sunday, July 12.
International throughout the globe has stopped since four months due to coronavirus pandemic. Indian working and living in gulf wanted to return to their motherland badly. Though Indian expatriates were brought to Indian from gulf nations like Dubai, Oman etc, from Bahrain not a single flight was arranged by government of India thinking that there will not be enough passengers to carry back to India. Due to this several senior citizens, women and people who wanted to return to motherland due to illness had to wait in Bahrain for months together.
Local entrepreneur and president of Indian Overseas Congress (IOC) Mohammed Mansoor, who saw the plight of the hapless Indian expatriates in Bahrain had discussions with the Indian embassy in Bahrain and arranged a special Air India Express flight under the Vande Bharat mission of government of India. Accordingly the flight was arranged on Sunday, July 12.
IOC, along with the cooperation of K H K Heroes organization, owned by local royal family, had arranged meal kits for passengers during their flight to Mangaluru. IOC had also contacted all the Mangaluru-based NRIs who wanted to fly back to India and made a list with the help of Indian embassy to avoid any untoward incidents.
