IndiGo starts operations from Abu Dhabi to Kerala

IndiGo, India's largest low-cost carrier by market share, is on an expansion mode in the Gulf. After Dubai and Sharjah, the airline is set to commence operations from the UAE capital.

Targeting the big expatriate population from the Indian state of Kerala, Kochi-Abu Dhabi (Dh355) non-stop services will start from Monday and Kozhikode-Abu Dhabi (Dh448) from Tuesday. The airline will operate A320s with 180 to 186 seats on the routes. Fares will start from Dh355, making Abu Dhabi's low-budget market very competitive.

IndiGo chief commercial officer William Boulter said the flights from Abu Dhabi would eventually cater to other cities in Kerala and Tamil Nadu.

"We are maximising the travel rights available under the India-UAE bilateral agreement. In the future, Abu Dhabi will be connected with other cities. There is huge demand between India and the UAE. We fly 13 flights a day to Dubai, 4 to Sharjah and now 2 to Abu Dhabi," Boulter said.
