Budget carrier IndiGo is all set to launch daily flights on the Thiruvananthapuram-Dubai route from March 1 this year. The airline would be offering introductory all-inclusive return fare of Rs 11,998 on the new non-stop flight, IndiGo President Aditya Ghosh said in a recent press release.
“We are introducing the flight considering the strong trade and tourism ties between the southern region of India and Dubai and the requirement of travellers for a low-fare Indian airline in the sector,” the news report quoted him stating.
A second daily and non-stop flight between Mumbai and Dubai is also being launched.
IndiGo is positioned as the fastest growing airline in India with 61 brand new Airbus A 320-Es and is operating 377 daily flights connecting 33 destinations, he said.
The Thiruvananthapuram-Dubai flight would leave at 1820 hrs and reach Dubai at 2115 hrs. In the return trip, it would leave Dubai at 1125 hrs and reach here at 1715 hrs, the report added.
