Alliance Air, a wholly owned subsidiary of Air India added smiles on the faces of children with special needs by turning their dream of flying by air into a reality. The airline took these junior flyers on a 40 minute long ‘Dream Flight’ within Bhubaneshwar recently.
Almost all children were from the urban poor areas of Bhubaneshwar and a few from a tribal village in Baripada. There were a total of 44 children on the dream flight. Minimum age of children on the Dream Flight was 8 years and maximum 18 years. The children were selected by Swabhimaan- an NGO based in Bhubaneshwar. The initiative was a joint effort of Odisha Govt, AAI, Air India, Alliance Air & Ministry of Civil Aviation.
