Boarding preference for pregnant women, children, seniors
Kannadigas in Dubai will arrive two days earlier than scheduled after Air India agreed to operate a flight from Dubai to Mangalore on May 12 instead of May 14. Union Minister DV Sadananda Gowda thanked all those who had made the earlier flight possible.
The Air India flight will leave Dubai at 4:10 pm to arrive in Mangalore at 9:10 pm. Priority will be given to pregnant women, children and seniors. The passengers will be quarantined at Mangalore, while those from Udupi district and Kerala will be home-quarantined, sources said.
