Air India, India’s largest and oldest airline will soon introduce daily Mumbai-Abu Dhabi flights effective November 1st thus increasing the frequency from 5 weekly flights to daily flights.
The new move has been introduced keeping in view the growing demand for flight services in the sector. The Mumbai-Abu Dhabi route had witnessed a 17 percent increase in passenger traffic in the first half of 2010, compared with the corresponding period last year. The additional services will raise Air India's total number of flights to Abu Dhabi to 14, connecting the UAE capital with both Mumbai and Delhi.
According to Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC), Air India will operate the high-tech A321 aircraft which will depart from Abu Dhabi at 2.40 a.m., and will arrive in Mumbai at 6.55 a.m. It will offer both business and economy class services.
Ahmed Al Haddabi, senior vice president of airports' operations at ADAC said: "We are delighted to see that our airline partners are keen to expand their services to meet our passengers' growing demand. At ADAC we continuously support such initiatives, assisting us in offering our customers more choices and putting us a step forward towards our goal in becoming a world class airport."
