The Jazeera Airways flight left Kuwait International Airport carrying 164 passengers and 8 crew members. “A dream turned into reality” the leaders of Welfare Kerala Kuwait stated about the successful mission. It was the first charter flight from Kuwait to India offering free charity tickets to all the passengers. In addition to free tickets, PPE kits and complimentary snacks were also distributed by Team Welfare volunteers at the airport.

A surprise gift of INR 2,400 (KD10 ) also handed over to all the adult passengers, which was a great relief to those who returned barehanded due to the pandemic crisis.

Most deserving passengers were selected from the applications received, giving priority to the sick, the elderly, those who have lost their jobs and other low-income expatriates.
