Delhi-Dubai 2nd busiest international route this month

Mumbai: The three-and-a half-hour route from Delhi to Dubai is the world’s second busiest international route this month, according to UKbased aviation data firm, OAG. The top slot for February is occupied by the threehour-long route between Orlando in the US and San Juan, capital of Puerto Rico.

Apart from their short flying times, what also connected these busy international routes were the dirt-cheap, last-minute fares on offer, indicating the low demand due to Covid.
