An Indian airline has run a special charity flight for local underprivileged children.
Indian airline Jet Airways has laid on a special charity flight for underprivileged children from the city of Kolkata.
More than 100 local kids were given a once-in-a-lifetime chance to fly onboard a Boeing 737-700, with in-flight entertainment provided by magician Maneka Sorcar.
Furthermore, the lucky children got to meet well known actress Koyel Mallic and enjoy free refreshments during the hour-long round-trip flight, which gave them great views over the country’s east coast.
Upon their return to Kolkata, each child was given a hamper of treats, including biscuits, sweets and snacks, as well as useful school stationery.
Brits thinking of booking flights to India with Jet Airways may be interested to know that the country is hosting its annual arts festival, Thrissur Pooram, next month.
Parades of brightly decorated elephants and spectacular fireworks are among the festivities planned for May 12th.
