DUBAI – A businessman from Kerala in India has bought a chartered flight to repatriate 185 Indian nationals stranded in the UAE.
Jiji Varghese, managing director of J&J Marketing, made the announcement in a press statement on Sunday (June 28).
Varghese said the chartered flight for July 3 will fly home 185 Indians from Dubai to Kochi. It is believed to be the first chartered flight sponsored by an individual.
Varghese said the initiative is “a small step taken towards the responsibility and commitment to serve others.”
He said the sponsored flight will help those who are chronically ill, pregnant women, low income workers and those who lost their jobs due to the coronavirus pandemic. ICA/Expat Media
