Posted on Monday, February 21st, 2022 by Navneet Kaur Leave a Comment
As the worldwide COVID pandemic eases, more and more people continue to travel abroad. With this, air connectivity between India and Dubai will be the first to reach pre-epidemic frequency after New Delhi allows additional flights. It will be also beneficial in reducing passenger fares.
As per the Global Airline industry’s statements – “The health ministry has approved it, and the approval is for increasing it to up to over 62,000 per week (pre-Covid levels) from the current 33,600 seats.”
The Ministry of Aviation sends all proposals on this subject to the Ministry of Health. The proposal for renewing routine global flights is still waiting to be approved by the Ministry of Health.
Earlier India To Dubai Flight Stats
In March 2020, COVID caused the cancellation of all flights in the India-Dubai sector. Prior to this, the airline was operating approximately 62,000 seats weekly. Currently, airlines are allowed to operate flights with 62,000 seats per week under the bubble association. The number of flights is expected to increase after the government lifts the ban on international travel.
The government is likely to resume international flights from India to Dubai at the end of March or the beginning of the summer season. This means that by then, airlines will be able to fly again.
Airlines are happy about the transfer because of the high load problem between India and Dubai. Planes are taking off in full swing, which is good news for airlines.
As per the airways statement, “The average load on flights between the two countries is 85%, and more flights would be a good idea, and both Indian and Dubai-based carriers would benefit from it. Passengers will benefit the most, who will benefit from lower fares.”
Sources also said that Dubai had requested an increase in flights under the bubble association in August and December. “Dubai had earlier decided to limit the number of flights allowed by India. As traffic increased, airlines began adding flights to Sharjah, where there were no restrictions,” said a supply from Dubai, explaining an explanation for a formal request.
Global Airline Industry Statements
The supplies quoted above were added in a phase with Sharjah airport operating 20% additional flights compared to Dubai. “Therefore, it was requested to increase the flight limits to pre-Covid levels even under bubble regime,” Airline Supplier said.
The Indian side agreed to increase the number of flights to Dubai but wanted Dubai to withdraw the pre-flight tests conducted for Indians travelling to Dubai.
