After a long hiatus, a direct charter flight from India to Kuwait was launched. This is very comforting news for ex-pats. This kind of news comes out after a long wait. The government currently allows the public sector and private companies to repatriate their employees. Therefore, it is clear that the direct charter flight service from India to Kuwait was launched after a long hiatus. The High Council of Ministers has given special permission in this regard to bring back the stranded workers in foreign countries. Accordingly, the chartered air service has been started.
Meanwhile, the cabinet had earlier given permission to various government departments in Kuwait to bring their employees trapped in lockdowns in foreign countries on charter flights. Accordingly, Kuwaiti government departments and affiliates began to bring in their staff on special flights. Jazeera Airways has flown 50 employees of Kuwait Drilling Company, a subsidiary of KOC, to Kuwait. The non-return of foreign employees who had gone on leave adversely affected the functioning of the office.
As a result, chartered flights from Kuwait to many countries, including India, have been banned. The Cabinet sub-committee directed the government departments to submit an application to the COVID Emergency Committee along with the names and posts of foreign workers who need to return to these flights immediately. The Cabinet Sub-Committee will review the list and issue travel permits.
