AI to fly daily on Dubai-Mangalore route soon

Air India Express, the low-cost airline of the national carrier, will soon operate a daily flight on the Dubai-Mangalore route to fly in hundreds of Indian expats living in the Gulf who hail from the coastal districts of Karnataka and Kerala.
With the formal inauguration of a direct service to Mangalore Tuesday by Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel, AI Express has begun operating three flights a week from Dubai and will extend it into a daily service from Nov 1.
‘The launch of a direct flight from Dubai makes the Bajpe airport at Mangalore the second destination in Karnataka to operate international flights after Bangalore. Besides AI Express, we are expecting Al Jazeera, a low-cost Kuwaiti airliner, to fly into Mangalore after it is granted landing rights by the government,’ Mangalore airport director M V Vasudeva told IANS on phone.
