It was a dream come true for seven visually handicapped girls who enjoyed a ride in an Air India plane from the national capital to Chandigarh on Monday.

Seven blind girls, from National Association of Blind, had a joy ride in an Air India's A321 aircraft, commanded by Captain R Dhillion, on Delhi-Chandigarh sector.

The special passengers were informed about the plane's cruising height and speed during the flight and after the ride they had "beaming faces".

Air India's station manager Vishrut Acharya greeted the group at the IGI airport while his counterpart at Chandigarh welcomed them.

The trip was part of the airline's corporate social responsibility in association with the Centre for Blind Women, which is working to rehabilitate blind women, an airline spokesperson said.
