The lucrative India-Gulf aviation sector will soon have another entrant - FlyDubai, a low-cost carrier promoted by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government.

The initiative to start the air service is part of an agreement between India and UAE that allows each side a weekly seating capacity of over 29,000 in either direction on outbound flights, said a senior civil aviation ministry official.

FlyDubai will initially fly to smaller cities such as Lucknow, Coimbatore, Chandigarh and Jaipur, a ministry official said.

The date for commencement of the service is yet to be announced.
