India-UAE air travel expected to see surge in traffic this month

Indian carriers are expecting a surge in air traffic this month between India and the UAE as people travel to plan business in the Gulf and as the end of the fiscal year approaches.

The move by airlines, including Air India, to accept bookings for transit travel through Dubai and Abu Dhabi to destinations in South America and Africa is also expected to add to increased air traffic in the India-UAE sector, airline industry executives said.

Some business leaders in India confirmed to Arabian Business their business-related travel plans for this month.

Airline executives, however, said there were no plans to increase the number of flights in the sector in March as flights are still operating below optimum seat capacities – or passenger load factor (PLF).

“March always sees increased international travel. It is forecasted to see increased international travel from India, especially to the Gulf, this March also,” a senior Air India Express executive told Arabian Business.
