Why Gaura

Celebrating 50 Charter Flights from Australia to India

On 19 March 2020, Australia shut its borders to the world as a measure to fight COVID-19. No one saw 2020 coming. Panic clenched people as they suddenly found themselves stranded in Australia.

The First Flight (22nd of July 2020)

When no commercial flights were operating, Gaura Travel worked day and night with the authorities bearing only one aim in their hearts –  “to reunite people with their loved ones”. With this firmness of purpose, the Melbourne based travel agency, operated its first charter flight to India, from Sydney Airport on 22 July 2020. The team of Gaura Travel provided incessant support to all the travellers at the airport and made sure everyone had a seamless journey.

10,000 Families Reunited (5th of February 2021)

On 5th February 2021 after 8 months of sheer hard work and courage, Gaura Travel accomplished the milestone of reuniting 10,000 families. Statistically, 18,000 passengers flew out of Melbourne: 15,000 by chartered flights and 3,000 under Vande Bharat Mission with Air India flying 17 sorties. From the 15,000, Gaura Travel accounted for 10,000.

The Wait is Over (27th of February 2021)

There was joy in the air, but the directors of Gaura Travel, Ashwini Sonthalia and Abhishek Sonthalia, knew that more had to be done. They resonated with the longing of those stuck in India, and now are back with a bang! On 27 February 2021, Gaura Travel announced the great news of special charter flights from India to Australia!

And now… 50 Charter Flights (19th Mar 2021)

Keeping their customers first, Gaura Travel is doing everything they can to be your best way home, no matter if it is from India or Australia.
