Abu Dhabi Airports has welcomed GoAir’s launch of two new daily flights, the first between Mumbai International Airport and Abu Dhabi, and the second to Delhi International Airport, further connecting the UAE capital to the two major Indian cities.

GoAir has launched inaugural flights from Delhi, India’s capital and Mumbai, the financial capital of the world’s sixth largest economy to Abu Dhabi, as the Indian subcontinent remains one of the most popular destinations for travelers departing from Abu Dhabi.

Maarten De Groof, chief commercial officer of Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “GoAir is one of our most promising new partners and we are pleased to welcome GoAir’s flights from Mumbai and Delhi to Abu Dhabi.

"India continues to be one of our largest and most important areas of operation.”

Jeh Wadia, managing director of GoAir, added: “Our daily flights from Mumbai and Delhi to Abu Dhabi is a manifestation of GoAir’s vision for the Middle East. In less than six months, we have introduced a new set of routes that supports business and leisure, and reinforces the strong relations between India and the UAE."

With its 50 Airbus A320 aircraft, GoAir offers more than 270 daily flights and about 1,600 weekly flights across domestic and international destinations.
