IndiGo, a low-cost carrier, has launched direct flights between Hyderabad and Ras Al Khaimah, providing Indian residents in the UAE with another economic option for travel to their home country. This new route expands IndiGo’s presence in the UAE, as they already serve Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah. Ras Al Khaimah becomes the airline’s 11th destination in the Middle East, the 26th international destination, and the 100th overall location in its network.
The India-UAE route is one of the busiest airline routes, as Indian citizens make up a significant portion of the UAE’s population. The recently signed Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (Cepa) is expected to further boost the travel sector in the coming years.
Vinay Malhotra, Head of Global Sales at IndiGo, mentioned that the airline is responding to the increasing demand for domestic and international travel by introducing new routes and adding frequencies to existing routes. With the Hyderabad-Ras Al Khaimah flights, IndiGo now operates 14 flights a week from two cities in India. The airline aims to provide on-time, affordable, courteous, and hassle-free travel experiences to passengers across its extensive network.
The launch of this new route will provide Indian residents in the UAE with more options for convenient and cost-effective travel to their home country, strengthening the air connectivity between Hyderabad and Ras Al Khaimah.
