Vasco: Air India brought in 153 stranded Indians from Sharjah to Goa recently. This has been the third Vande Bharat Mission operation to Goa. All sanitization and social distance protocols were duly followed and all help was extended by the Goa Airport staff.

Further, to meet the requirements of the passengers departing and arriving from Goa airport, some retail outlets are also made functional. Touchless purchase and payments besides social distance and sanitized areas were also ensured. 

Meanwhile an association named Goans Connecting Goans Association (GSCGS) has expressed their gratitude towards the State government and Centre.

 “As the effects of the outbreak impacted millions across the world, we at GSCGS took up the call to help and assist our larger Goan diaspora in Dubai,” said GSCGS in a press statement. 

“Since the outbreak of the virus, numerous Goans in Dubai were anxious to return home. As authorities both in India and the UAE assessed the best next steps to start safe repartition flights, we at GCG listened to the numerous Goan voices and concerns and offered support by providing the best valuable and verified information we had," they added.
