GoAir launches daily flights between Mumbai and Abu Dhabi, as well as Delhi and Abu Dhabi
19 July 2019, Abu Dhabi, UAE: Abu Dhabi Airports has welcomed GoAir’s launch of daily new flights connecting the two most important Indian cities - Mumbai and Delhi to the capital city of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi.
GoAir’s inaugural flight from Mumbai and Delhi to Abu Dhabi was received with warmth and fanfare today, as the Indian subcontinent remains one of the most popular destinations for travelers departing from the UAE. Delhi is the capital of India and Mumbai is considered as the financial capital of the world’s 6th largest economy.
Maarten De Groof, Chief Commercial Officer of Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “I reiterate the fact that GoAir is our most promising new partner and we are pleased to welcome GoAir’s flights from Mumbai and Delhi to Abu Dhabi. India continues to be been one of our largest and most important areas of operations, and we and look forward to ensuring GoAir’s guests enjoy a comfortable and efficient experience throughout Abu Dhabi International Airport where we continue to deploy world-class smart travel solutions, attractive retail offerings, and relaxing lounge spaces.
“This additional service to Abu Dhabi reflects the capital’s status as a key destination and transit hub for business and leisure travelers, forms a part of our strategy to attract new airlines to our network, and will support tourism growth in the Emirate,” added De Groof.
Mr. Jeh Wadia, Managing Director of GoAir, said: “Our daily flights between Mumbai/ Delhi and Abu Dhabi is a manifestation of GoAir’s vision for the Middle East. Here we are, in less than six months, with a new set of routes that symbolizes business and leisure and also reminds us of the historically strong Indian–UAE relationship. GoAir is India’s fastest growing airline and we see Abu Dhabi as the logical extension of our operations. GoAir is delighted to work with Abu Dhabi Airports and its management. I welcome aboard passengers from Mumbai, Delhi and Abu Dhabi on daily direct flight services. FlySmart, fly GoAir.
“At GoAir we would like to take this opportunity to thank the Government of UAE and the Rulers as well as General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) of UAE for making this happen. Special gratitude goes to our partners in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi – ALFAHIM Group’s Safar Travel & Tourism LLC; Al Naboodha Travel LLC Dubai, Sharjah and Ajman and Arabian Travel Services LLC Fujairah and Ras Al Khaimah. Last but not the least, GoAir thanks Abu Dhabi Airports and Etihad Ground and Maintenance services,” added Mr. Wadia.
