In one of the largest COVID-19-related repatriations from the Gulf by a private employer, Expertise has begun operating chartered flights to send home over 1,600 of its Indian employees
Expertise has organised largest private Covid-19 repatriation flight operations through chartered jets to five states in Indian subcontinent. This is targeted for repatriating more than 2,000 employees through chartered flights to India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal this month.
The flights, chartered from Gulf Air are being operated from the city of Dammam in Saudi Arabia to Delhi, Mangalore, Chennai, Ahmedabad and Hyderabad in India and major cities of its neighbouring countries.The company short-listed over 2,000 employees for the Covid-related repatriations considering various emergencies such as pregnant women, employees of over 50 years of age, children and medical needs personnel.
During the initial lockdown days of the pandemic, the borders of most of the countries in the world were closed and no country was allowing any humans to either enter or leave the respective countries, adding enormous stress to the migrant populations across the world, especially in the Gulf.
