NEW DELHI, India – Air India Express will introduce flight services to Dubai and Sharjah from New Delhi from May and also enhance connectivity to the Gulf region from Mumbai. It is also adding Ras al-Khaimah as its new destination in the Gulf region.

This is the first time since its launch in 2005 that the Kochi-based airline, the international budget arm of national carrier Air India, will be spreading its wings to the national capital. The flights from Delhi are set to be launched from May 10 and are a part of the recently announced summer schedule of Air India Express, a release said.

The two new routes will be serviced by one of the six brand new Boeing 737 leased aircraft, which are being inducted in the Air India Express fleet, it said.

Air India Express will commence two new daily air services to Dubai and Sharjah from Mumbai from April 7 as part of its plan to increase connectivity to the Gulf from the commercial capital.
