IndiGo Expands Its International Reach With New Flights To The Middle East

IndiGo, since its launch, has been intentional about being the apex airline in India. This goal has been at the core of the services the airline provides, influencing its products, offers, and operations. Weeks after announcing new flight routes within the Indian border, IndiGo has now set its eyes on international airspace.

IndiGo holds its customers in high esteem. Due to increasing demand, the airline has made low-cost fares available to travellers, introducing new international flights connecting Indian tourists, students, and other business travellers to Europe and the Middle East.

IndiGo intends to strengthen its operation in the Middle East as part of its goal to connect its passengers to international regions. From March 26, the airline will begin its daily flight operation to new destinations in the Middle East from multiple airports. The latest flight routes include:

  • Abu Dhabi to Hyderabad
  • Chennai to Muscat
  • Abu Dhabi to Chennai

IndiGo has gradually spread its wings into the Gulf region over the years, and the new flight routes will give more options to travellers flying between India and the Middle East.

As India is becoming a favourite tourist destination, the new flight routes are expected to experience healthy patronage from tourists from the Middle East. IndiGo hopes to open the Middle East to spectacular sights and rich Indian culture and vice verse. Foreign tourists can visit all of India’s tourist locations, including the blue city (Jodhpur), the pink city (Jaipur), and Raipur. India’s IT hub in Pune is expected to experience more exposure to foreign intellects.

IndiGo is gradually recovering from the crash in passenger traffic due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Still, most importantly, its international passenger traffic is growing at a rate that indicates the airline will have unparalleled international passenger traffic in India.

Will IndiGo be able to continue achieving milestone after milestone, as has become its trend? Please share your opinion with us.
