With more flights from UAE to India, ticket sale sees a surge

Abu Dhabi: With more special flights operating in the fourth phase of Vande Bharat Mission from the UAE to India, the number of people at the ticket booking office in Abu Dhabi has swelled. Till Tuesday afternoon, a total of 51 flights are announced for this month from Abu Dhabi, much more than June.
The Air India Express office in Abu Dhabi has seen the number of tokens issued to people jump from 350 per day to 450 within a week of temporarily moving its operations to the India Social and Cultural Centre (ISC).
P.H. Hari, sales manager, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain region, Arabian Travel Agency, said they are working without a break for more than a month.
"On average we have between 350 and 400 customers but it's increasing. The number hit 454 two days back. We have six staff issuing tickets at the counter. We have another two staff collecting details and cash or card from the passengers at the counters. We are open daily from 9am till the last passenger is issued ticket. None of the staff has off days for more than a month. But with so many stranded people, we have to act responsibly."
Hari urged people to register with missions and come to the ISC with either original passport or printed copy of passport, and money to book ticket.
"There are more flights than last month. So, none will return disappointed."
