Border Reopening: Looking Back To What Gaura Travel Has Accomplished

Being distanced from your loved ones is one of the most difficult things people around the world have had to bear throughout the pandemic; many living far from their home and families felt great sorrow during that tragic time. The feeling of helplessness and longing loomed over many hearts especially those who had to cross oceans to get back home.

With borders quickly shutting due to the pandemic, it became difficult, near impossible, to embrace your loved ones in person; however, Gaura Travel proudly came to the rescue by bringing estranged hearts back together. By securing deals with various airlines and the relevant government agencies, Gaura Travel was able to arrange a number of charter flights between Australia and India until eventually, on November 1, 2021, the border between Australia and India reopened.

In the last few years, Gaura Travel has achieved many great things, both before and after the reopening of Australian borders. Between 2020 and 2021, Gaura Travel flew 102 charter flights, reuniting over 20,000 separated families. Gaura Travel clearly shed a light of hope for those who desired to be closer to their family and friends at home. As a result, Gaura Travel earned a commendable appearance from the Indian High Commissioner and rose to the top of the Indian repatriation Charter Flight market.

Gaura Travel has a 50% market share in AUS-IND Charter flights due to our clients’ faith in us. As well as this, Gaura Travel is also ATAS and IATA accredited, as well as an AFTA member.

Gaura Travel has also been a sponsor at numerous events such as India Fair 2015 and 2016, India Australia Friendship Fair 2015, Ganesh Festival 2017, and Diwali Festival 2022 in Melbourne, Adelaide, and Sydney. In addition, Malaysia Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Air India, and many more airlines have recognized Gaura Travel as a successful travel agency.
