SKYPASS CHARTERS FLIGHT FOR REPATRIATION MISSION
July 23, 2020
Skypass Foundation is grateful to have become the gateway of an initiative that has repatriated Indian citizens who were separated from their families and stranded in the United States due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. Around 300 passengers eagerly and expectantly boarded an Etihad Airways private charter flight from Chicago to Mumbai on July 4, 2020. This was the first passenger charter flight approved to repatriate stranded citizens from the U.S. to India. On July 22, another 160 passengers boarded a United Airlines private charter from Newark to Delhi. Employees and their families of some of the top global technology and professional services companies were on the flight.
The Foundation, as part of its Mission & Humanitarian activities complimenting its efforts to provide resources, education, and support to those impacted by major medical challenges, led this effort. We are honored to have collaborated with both public and private sector agencies in the US and India to accomplish this outcome.
We are truly humbled to have been chosen for this endeavor and beyond blessed to have been able to take these people back to what will surely be a homecoming to remember.
