Posted 4 March 2019 · Add Comment

Abu Dhabi Airports has welcomed GoAir’s launch of four new flights between Kannur International Airport (CNN) and Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH), connecting the two cities with flights operating every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

 

GoAir’s inaugural flight from Kannur to Abu Dhabi was received with much fanfare today, as the Indian subcontinent remains one of the most popular destinations for travellers departing from AUH. In addition, Kannur itself is popular leisure and business destination within the state of Kerala.

Bryan Thompson, CEO Abu Dhabi Airports said: “India is a key travel market for Abu Dhabi International Airport, and we are always eager to strengthen our connectivity to the Indian Subcontinent, enhancing further our services extended to our dear customers.”

Maarten De Groof, chief commercial officer of Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “As one of our most promising new partners, we are pleased to welcome GoAir’s flights to Abu Dhabi. India has always been one of our largest and most important areas of operations, and we look forward to ensuring GoAir’s guests enjoy a comfortable and efficient experience throughout Abu Dhabi International Airport where we continue to deploy world-class smart travel solutions, attractive retail offerings, and relaxing lounge spaces.”

“This additional service to Abu Dhabi reflects the Capital’s status as a key destination and transit hub, and forms a part of our strategy to attract new airlines to our network,” added De Groof.

Jeh Wadia, managing director, GoAir, said: “This is a historic moment for GoAir as we enter the Middle East region with our maiden flight taking off from Kannur to Abu Dhabi, thereby strengthening the India – UAE relationship. GoAir is world’s fastest growing airline and Abu Dhabi is our 4th international destination after Phuket, Male and Muscat, and 28th destination sequentially speaking. GoAir is delighted to partner with Abu Dhabi Airports.”
