2 flights to Kuwait launched from Ahmedabad

Ahmedabad: Signalling a revival in travel, two new flights to Kuwait were launched recently from the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International (SVPI) airport in Ahmedabad. These include two flights a week by each of Air India and Kuwait Airlines, confirmed airport sources.

These apart, a domestic flight to Indore also started operations recently by TruJet airline, according to the source. A month ago, at least five new flights, among others, began operations from the SVPI airport. These include flights to Delhi, Chennai, Kolhapur, Mumbai and Goa.

Flights operations to London resumed as part of the air bubble agreement. While Dubai-bound flights were the first international operations to resume, an additional flight were recently added along the sector.

Airport sources also said that another flight along the Ahmedabad-Pune flight is expected to start in the days to come. “As passenger footfalls are improving at the city airport, preference for domestic travel is going up. Therefore, airlines are more bullish on increasing frequency on existing sectors or adding more flights on newer sectors where demand is cropping up,” said a source.

According to travel agents and tour operators, both corporate and leisure travel has improved. “Corporate movement is gradually picking up and the bookings are good for leisure travel as well. With this, demand for air travel has gone up and therefore, more flights may be added,” said Manish Sharma, president, Travel Agents’ Federation of India (TAFI) – Gujarat.
