IndiGo to launch services to Gulf
IndiGo will commence services to the Gulf, including Dubai and Muscat, from Aug-2011, after it received the Indian Government’s approval (Khaleej Times, 21-Jan-2011). The Indian civil aviation ministry approved the carrier’s application and granted it traffic rights from Aug-2011, when the carrier turns five. Indigo has short-listed 15 international routes in the Gulf. The government has approved its plans to operate daily flights to Dubai, Bangkok and Singapore from Mumbai and Delhi and to Muscat from Mumbai. Indigo will announce the schedule and starting dates for the services in coming months.
