India’s national carrier, Air India is all set to start three new services from the Gulf countries connecting India. With the new gulf routes, the airlines total count of expanding route network will increase to 18 Gulf connections.

India’s flag carrier, Air India is all set to start three new routes between the Gulf countries and India. The airlines decision is believed to bring its total number of Gulf connections to a roaring 18 connections.

The airline will connect Vishakapatnam in India, with direct flight from Dubai. Vishakapatnam is a tantalizing South Indian charmer that lures millions to look for deals on cheap flights tickets to India.

Deepak Barara, Air India’s Executive Director, informed that the new routes planned to the Gulf would include a flight to India’s capital New Delhi from Manama, Bahrain and Dammam.

It is also believed that the recently cancelled route between Salalah and Thiruvananthapuram might also resume shortly. Currently Air India routes 21 flights to India per week from Gulf countries.

Mr. Barara further said, “India is a growing economy and the double-digit revenue growth is due to a corresponding growth in the country’s GDP. The weakness of a leading private airline would have helped the national carrier, but the main reason for the growth has been the GDP growth”.

Mr. Barara, while addressing the annual review meeting with representatives of various travel agents who sell Air India tickets, also informed that Air India and Air India Express together account for about 30 per cent of the total traffic between India and the UAE.

With its major hubs at New Delhi and Mumbai based international airports, Air India operates a fleet of Airbus and Boeing aircraft serving Asia, Australia, Europe and North America. Air India Express is the low cost subsidiary airline of Air India and is a preferred choice for holiday makers to travel to the Gulf region on cheap flights tickets.
