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


Media Release

Doha, Jul 18: 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.

    Ss, Mangalore, Your comments make no sense at all. Have some courtesy to the passengers who are returning back to their hometown after all the trouble they have gone through.

    Well Said!!! Going by your Logic you should not be allowed to enter your house once to go out. There are high chances that you will infect your spouses after you return back home.

    All these years you have enjoyed the money coming in from abroad and now to don't want NRI's to return. People like you are bigger threat to society then Corona. Shame on you ..

    They are returning to their homeland due to job loss or other personal reasons. No need to have any one's permission or your approval. Just take care of yourself and others around you. People who come from other country to their home land are more knowledgeable and do not play with lights & hit the plates. Get some facts checked first. Jai hind.

    More than 15 to 20 lakhs of people have already lost their jobs at GCC. From August-2020 onwards, so many NRIs returning to the Coastal region of Mangalore & Udupi.

    Those who have their own house may have peaceful family life....and those don't have their own house, then they need to adjust to the situation with joint-family pressure....advised to stay at least rented house.
