     GoAir Launches Flights from Mumbai and Delhi to Abu Dhabi International Airport
 
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, 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.
Earlier this year, GoAir and Safar Travel & Tourism announced the inauguration of the airline’s first flight between Kannur International Airport and Abu Dhabi International Airport.
