Two new direct flights to connect India to Abu Dhabi

Budget airline IndiGo has launched two new direct flights from New Delhi and Mumbai to Abu Dhabi. With the latest additions, IndiGo now serves four Indian destinations from Abu Dhabi including Cochin, Calicut, Delhi and Mumbai. 

William Boulter, the airline's chief commercial officer, said, “Abu Dhabi and the UAE are a critical market for strengthening our presence in the Middle East. We see great potential in expanding our connections to the UAE, further bolstering the extensive cultural, business and tourism links between India and the Middle East.”

The inaugural flights from Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport and Mumbai's  Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport took place on June 5.  

Bryan Thompson, CEO of Abu Dhabi Airports, believes that the increased connectivity reflects the strong commercial and tourism connection between the UAE and India. “With the two new routes we look forward to continuing to facilitate the travel of Indian expats between their homeland and the UAE and attracting tourist traffic between the multiple destinations,” he added.

IndiGo passengers travelling from Abu Dhabi International Airport will be able to use Abu Dhabi Airports’ remote check-in locations at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) and opposite Abu Dhabi Mall.
