Travel Home In Luxury & Comfort!

It has been a long road.

Ever-changing rules and regulations that have dominated headlines over the last few months have come at the cost of individuals who found themselves stranded in India, unable to find a way back home.

Families have spent months separated from other members of their family with chances of seeing loved ones dwindling away with every passing day. With hopes of securing a ticket back home to Australia also looking bleaker, courtesy of limited options being available to passengers, hopes of coming back home began to look like an illusion.

Ever since the pandemic first struck, most doors seemed shut. But our entire team has made a habit of finding a new door or simply breaking down existing ones. 

Fly Business Class with Sri Lankan Airlines

Our recent collaboration with Sri Lanka Airlines means that all those stranded in India have a viable option to come back home. And we are not referring to travelling like cattle, with minimal amenities on a flight that lasts for many hours. As if the stress they have faced over the last few months was not enough!

Instead, we have made arrangements to provide you with the ultimate in flying comfort and luxury – we have facilitated a rare and luxurious BUSINESS CLASS experience for you.

You deserve it, weary traveler! Spend your journey in comfort, where you can relax and unwind, physically and mentally in a flight where every in-flight need of yours is catered for.

You will find yourself in a world-class flight, with award-winning service and only handful of other passengers. Spend your journey in peace with the knowledge that you are not one of hundreds, packed into a flight like ‘sardines in a can’.

What you will experience

Not even once will you need to request someone to let you access the aisle. Thanks to Sri Lankan Airlines providing 28 leather seats (in what is known as the ‘herringbone structure’), you and every other passenger in the flight will have their own personal and complete access to the aisle.

You certainly don’t have to sit in great discomfort for the duration of the flight – you can travel the entire flight resting your tired bodies on flat beds. That’s right, stretch your legs and sink in the comfort on offer.

Or you might even want to forget the difficulties of the past few months and immerse yourself in a wide range of inflight entertainment, playing out on an impressive 15.4” monitor.

Store your personal belongings safely and securely in storage space that is yours for the length of the flight.

Charge your equipment using the USB portals, but most importantly, charge your mind and body, and prepare yourself to see your loved ones again.

Plan your ‘escape’ with us

Our next flight from India to Australia is on August 2nd. If you are looking to make that getaway and find your way back home, then do not wait. Only 9 seats are left now!

Other flights on sale are scheduled on:

  • August 9th
  • August 16th
  • August 23rd
  • 30 August 30th!

They say, ‘every cloud has a silver lining’. With Sri Lankan Airlines’ Business Class, who knows, you might actually see a cloud with a golden lining?

See you back home.

When Home Calls

When COVID 19 happened, at first we did not know the extent of the impact it would have on us.

At that time my parents were with us and were scheduled to leave for India in a couple of weeks. We told ourselves that the pandemic might well be a blessing in disguise – it probably meant that we as a family would get to spend more time with each other. My 6-year old son was over the moon that he would get to go on more walks with his grandad and get to eat more sweets made by his grandma.

I wish we could have foreseen what lay head of us. The Victorian government went on to announce a strict lockdown. Within weeks, the very house that my parents loved, began to feel like prison. Wearing a mask became a thing of dread and going out for walks soon dwindled into oblivion.

Naturally, all of this resulted in one overwhelming desire – to go back to their home in India.

My parents longed to be reunited with the country that gave them everything, including me. I would see my mother control her tears at the sight of anything that reminded her of India. My father would watch every little piece of news about India with renewed vigour and interest.

The longing they had for their homeland, sat like a thorn that refused to go away. If anything it developed into a source of tremendous stress.

But with commercial flights grinding to a halt, there was no way back home. Not right then anyway. During a casual phone call, a friend of ours told us that Gaura Travel started operating charter flights from Australia to Delhi.

So what did we do? Well, I immediately took my phone and was about to call them when my wife reminded me that it was almost midnight! I recalled what my friend had said – that they were open 24/7. I flipped my laptop open and hit their website. And sure enough, I was chatting to them within seconds.

The lady chatting with us was professional, warm and reassuring. This was exactly what we needed to counter the anxiety my parents were going through and the stressful situation we found ourselves in.

Her accurate and timely responses meant we could take an informed decision – within the hour, we had booked our tickets. Given the extraordinary circumstances, we certainly did not expect to see things moving so fast. The next morning my father hugged me, thanking me. Yes, there were tears too.

Surprisingly, Gaura Travel offered to take that on for us as well and before I knew it they called me, letting me know that the exemption had been approved! This was 5-star levels of service.

The day arrived. That trip to the airport wasn’t easy. Just as we were about to check-in, we met someone from Gaura Travel there. I mean, seriously, since when did a travel agency take the effort to come to the airport and ensure that their passengers were being looked after?

They were able to get my mother, who suffers from acute arthritis a wheelchair. And the smile on her face, when my son was wheeling her around the airport…yes, priceless indeed.

They had an incredibly smooth flight back home and settled into their home quickly. Us on the other hand? Well, we got back from the airport to an empty house, filled with sweet memories of my parents.

And a heartfelt thank you to an organization that has made it their business to help families find a way back home. My parents were reunited with the life and the land they love so much.

And for this, I cannot be more grateful to Gaura Travel. I recently read that they reunited 10,000 families through their charter flights – well, I consider myself very luck that ours was one of those too.
