flydubai launches new low-cost route from Dubai to Ahmedabad in India
flydubai continued expanding its network between Dubai (DXB) and India, launching flights to its third Indian destination on 27 August. The airline now flies once a week to Ahmedabad (AMD) in Gujarat in western India. Competition comes from the low-cost airline’s parent Emirates, which operates the route 10 times weekly. Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO of flydubai, said: “The growing Indian expatriate population in the UAE and the increasing reliance our two nations have on each other for our economic growth and development, makes the introduction of quality, affordable direct flights between the UAE and India’s numerous secondary airports very important.
