Air India's Indore-Dubai flight resumes after 17 months

Indore: Air India's Indore-Dubai flight resumed operations on Wednesday, after being stopped in March last year in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia attended virtually a programme organised at the Devi Ahilyabai Holkar International Airport here for the resumption of this only international flight from Madhya Pradesh.

"The Indore-Dubai flight is being resumed after 17 months. I remember that just five days after I became the civil aviation minister, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan made the first demand to me that this flight be resumed," he said while addressing the function through video conference.

The flight will take off from Indore every Wednesday at 12.35 pm Indian Standard Time and reach Dubai at 3.05 pm, officials said.

From Dubai, the plane will take off every Wednesday at 4.05 pm UAE time and reach Indore at 8.55 pm.

According to experts, the flight, which was initially launched on July 15, 2019 on public demand, will give a boost to tourism and trade between central India and the UAE.
