Indian state seeks Emirates connectivity

Dubai: India’s central state of Madhya Pradesh is seeking Emirates flights to two of its main cities to boost tourism and investment, a top official told Gulf News.
In an interview at Emirates Towers on Wednesday, Kamal Nath, Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, said Emirates is capable of connecting the world to his state, home to 78 million people.

The chief minister, who was in Dubai to attend a leadership forum event on Wednesday, said he held talks with senior officials to explore flight connectivity with capital the Bhopal and the commercial hub of Indore. The minister said he met senior officials at the airline, requesting Emirates to consider flights between Indore and Dubai, because of the traffic from Madhya Pradesh which goes to Europe, Africa and United States.

“With Emirates flying to Indore, we will get the connectivity … so [the official] said he supports it and we should take it up with the Government of India to give them permission,” the chief minister said.
