Abu Dhabi expands connectivity with new daily flights to India

This is great news for those wishing to see more of India, as well as those looking to visit their family.

Abu Dhabi Airports has announced new daily flights from Zayed International Airport to Chandigarh and Kannur, alongside the resumption of daily flights to Lucknow.

IndiGo, which commenced operations from Zayed International in 2020, has added 21 weekly flights, marking a 50 per cent increase and bringing its total to 63 weekly frequencies.

The expansion includes the launch of new flights to the previously unserved city of Chandigarh, increasing the total number of destinations served from Zayed International Airport to over 120.

Elena Sorlini, CEO of Abu Dhabi Airports, emphasised the significance of this milestone in their commitment to expanding and diversifying their network.

Sorlini stated, “The launch of these new routes marks an important milestone in the commitment to our partnership and readiness to expand and diversify our network of destinations.


“This enhanced connectivity not only strengthens our position as a preferred hub in the region but also reinforces Abu Dhabi’s connectivity with key destinations in India.”

Pieter Elbers, CEO of IndiGo, expressed delight over the network expansion, saying, “This strategic expansion will solidify our presence in the UAE and present discerning business and leisure travellers with an array of improved flight options, enabling effortless connectivity across our unmatched network.

“We remain committed to collaborating with Abu Dhabi Airports.”

With three more cities to explore in India, it’s probably time to start packing.
