Air India Express defers Doha flight launch

Doha: Budget carrier Air India Express has temporarily shelved plans to launch the proposed 12 direct flights to Doha from April following a shortage of aircraft, Debashis Golder, Manager, Air India, said here yesterday.
The airline was earlier planning to fly to Doha from April, during its summer schedule, in time for the peak vacation season but instead operate the route in November. Golder disclosed that the decision to defer the all-economy class no-frills carrier's flights to Doha comes in wake of the Indian government giving away rights to UAE based airlines to operate more services to India. Air-India, meanwhile, will operate seven weekly fights between Doha and various Indian destinations, Golder said. Of these, four weekly flights will be operated to Kochi, two per week to Thiruvananthapuram and two to Kozhikkode.
