Emirates to add 31 Flights to India

Dubai-based international air carrier Emirates today announced that it will add 31 weekly services to India. This will lead the number of weekly flights to 163 by February 2009.

The carrier will introduce seven additional flights with effect from October 26 between Delhi and Dubai, increasing the total weekly frequency in this route from 18 to 25 flights.

The Emirates will add seven additional flights per week to its current 28 flights per week from Mumbai.

"We are going to add 31 more weekly flights to the existing 132 by February next year. The enhanced capacity will position Emirates as the single largest international carrier in the Indian skies," Emirates Vice-President (India and Nepal) Orhan Abbas told reporters during a press conference.
