The new flights were celebrated with a cake cutting ceremony on Wednesday, 5th June and was attended by key representatives from Abu Dhabi International Airport and IndiGo.  

Bryan Thompson, chief executive officer of Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “We are delighted to have IndiGo launch two new routes between Abu Dhabi International Airport and Delhi and Mumbai with flights scheduled every day. This enhanced connectivity reflects the strong connection between the UAE and India in a variety of areas including commerce and tourism.”

“IndiGo is one of the busiest Indian airlines operating at Abu Dhabi International Airport to now four destinations; Cochin, Calicut, Delhi and Mumbai. With the two new routes we look forward to continuing to facilitate the travel of Indian expats between their homeland and the UAE and attracting tourist traffic between the multiple destinations,” added Thompson.

William Boulter, chief commercial officer, IndiGo said: “As we strengthen our operations from Delhi and Mumbai for domestic and international connectivity from India, Abu Dhabi being a major cultural and commercial centre in UAE, is a critical market for strengthening our presence in the Middle-East. We see great potential in expanding our connections to the UAE, further bolstering the extensive cultural, business and tourism links between India and the Middle East.”

Boulter added: “With the addition of these new international flights and enhanced domestic frequency, we are committed to expanding our network to meet the requirements of both business and leisure travellers. It is our constant endeavour to provide flexibility of choice to our customers as IndiGo continues to offer on-time, affordable, courteous and hassle-free flying experience consistently.”
