Passenger carrier IndiGo has announced the launch of a fourth direct flight on the Mumbai-Dubai route, starting from August 25, 2019. The airline will operate a late-night flight on Mumbai-Dubai route, it said in a statement. "The new flight is designed to cater to business and leisure travellers who are constantly on the lookout for new and affordable flying options," IndiGo added. Bookings for the flight are open via IndiGo's official website- goindigo.in, with immediate effect. The announcement from IndiGo comes amid high competition in the country's civil aviation market.
"We are pleased to announce our fourth frequency between Mumbai and Dubai. This new flight will help business as well as leisure travellers who wish to travel late night, to make full use of the day they are in Dubai," said William Boulter, Chief Commercial Officer, IndiGo. "The route has a huge pull for leisure as well as business traffic and has been instrumental in promoting trade and commerce between India and the United Arab Emirates (UAE)," he said.
IndiGo is also offering domestic and international flight tickets at a starting all-inclusive price of Rs 999 and Rs 3,499 respectively.
