The chartered aircraft, according to KMCC officials, will leave Dubai International Airport for Calicut on September 1 at 1pm, and will carry 166 amnesty-seekers.
Yahya Thalangara, general secretary of KMCC, UAE chapter said: “Ever since the UAE government declared the amnesty, we have been in forefront to help the amnesty-seekers.
Most of them were struggling to find money for air-tickets. Initially, we had given tickets to some people. But we felt it was not enough. So we decided to charter the flight.”
Yahya said: “Air India had given us a good package for chartering the flight. If needed, we will charter one more aircraft,” Yahya said.
“We will give preference to patients, women and old people. Even though amnesty-seekers from Kerala will get the preference for tickets, other Indian nationals can also approach us. Our members across the UAE will participate in selecting the needy,” he said.
Earlier, Kairali Television, a premier Malayalam television channel, had chartered an aircraft for 160 amnesty-seekers who were taken to Cochin a week ago.
