Air India Express to introduce flights to Dubai, Sharjah and Ras-Al-Khaimah

Air India Express will launch new flights from New Delhi to Dubai and Sharjah in May, 2016. The budget arm of Air India, India's national carrier, will also be adding Ras al Khaimah to its portfolio in the Middle East.

The airline announced that the flights to Dubai and Sharjah will also operate from Mumbai, as well as New Delhi. The New Delhi flights will start on 10th May, 2016 and are part of the carrier's summer schedule. The services will be operated by one of six new leased Boeing 737 aircraft. The two new daily flights to Dubai and Sharjah from Mumbai will commence on 7th April, 2016.

Flights between Kozhikode and Dubai have been doubled to two daily flights, and there will be new non-stop flights introduced between Kozhikode and Bahrain and Doha in the Middle East.

Ras-Al-Khaimah will be introduced as a brand new destination for Air India Express, with four flights per week from Kozhikode. The flight will be shared with Al-Ain, leading to an increase of four daily flights between Al-Ain and Kozhikode from one flight per week.

The Middle East has become an increasingly popular destination for both business and leisure travellers over recent years, and the United Arab Emirates is emerging as a hotspot for twin-centre holidays and sunshine breaks.

The United Arab Emirates are made up of seven states and include Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, and Umm al-Quwain.

The capital Abu Dhabi boasts to a wide range of attractions, such as Khalifa Park, Sheikh Zayed Mosque, the Marina Mall, and the Abu Dhabi Mall. The waterfront, golden sandy beaches, world-class golf courses, and lush emerald parks provide vast space for family activities and relaxation away from the busy city.

Dubai is home to some of the world's most unique architecture including the Burj al Arab and the soaring Burj Khalifa, as well as an array of attractions such as the Dubai Fountain with its lights that dance in time to water displays, Jumeriah Beach, Dubai Creek, the Palm Islands, and Dubai Mall.

Ras al Khaimah is situated just 45 minutes away from Dubai International Airport (DXB), and is a hotspot for adventure-lovers due its access to the beautiful mountains, red sandy desert, green plains, creeks and lagoons, and 64 kilometres of coast line with pristine white sandy beaches.
