Emirates airlines will start its six-flights-a-week service to Ahmedabad in western India from October 28, senior officials have said.
The non-stop flight from Dubai will be the airline's ninth destination in India, and second in the country's western region in two decades after it connected Mumbai in 1985, its vice-president in charge of commercial operations in West Asia and Indian Ocean Salem Obaidallah was quoted by WAM news agency as saying on Monday.
Obaidallah said Emirates' Dubai-Ahmedabad flight comes a year after the airline embarked upon a major expansion programme in southern India.
"Ahmedabad's travel trade has already shown overwhelming interest in our product offerings that include Emirates SkyCargo, Emirates Holidays, and our Passenger Sales products," Obaidallah added.
