Air India Express Opens Flight Bookings For UAE Till December 31


No-frills carrier Air India Express has open the flight bookings to/from UAE till 31st December 2020 under the air bubble agreement.

This comes as phase 7 of India’s Vande Bharat Mission – the repatriation mission India had launched for stranded citizens and expats during the pandemic – is set to end on 25th October.

As per the social media update, Air India Express will operate Flights from Dubai to Delhi, Amritsar, Lucknow, Varanasi, Jaipur, Vijayawada, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Mangaluru, Mumbai, Chennai, Madurai, Trichy, Kannur, Kozhikode, Kochi & Trivandrum.

As India and UAE signed the air bubble agreement there is no requirement for any registration for travel on these flights.

Tickets could be purchased through the airline’s website, call center, or an authorized travel agent, the airline said in a tweet.

This month, India will operate 270 repatriation flights out of the UAE, essentially for those expats wanting to return to their homes after the pandemic disruption. In the reverse direction, 269 flights will be operated to the UAE from Indian cities by Air India Express during the 24 days from October 1.

Due to a ban on inbound flights from India in some Gulf states, thousands of expat workers based in those countries are now looking to fly via UAE.
