Now, A-I Express can fly to Kuwait

New Delhi: The government has decided to allow Air India Express — the low-cost subsidiary of national carrier Air India — to start services to Kuwait. In 2004, the government had reserved the Gulf sector for the state-run Indian and Air-India for three years, even as AI Express was flying it to utilise A-I’s unutilised rights.
AI Express has now been designated as a scheduled airline to operate flights to Kuwait. According to civil aviation ministry officials, the Indian government has entered into an understanding with Kuwait to allow AI Express to operate services to the country. They said other routes on the India-Gulf sector could soon be opened to AI Express.
