To achieve network alignment with its subsidiary Air India Express, full service carrier Air India has bolstered its flight operations to Dubai with more non-stop flights to and from Delhi and Mumbai.
According to the airline, this optimisation of flight schedule for Dubai will drive synergy by densifying presence on the routes that are more commercially viable and reducing frequencies on overlapping routes.

“Between Mumbai and Dubai, Air India now operates up to 6x daily flights (in both directions). For most of the week, this means eight flights a day each way to Dubai from the two Indian cities.”
