Dubai Airlines announces an increase in airline ticket prices for these countries and calls for more flights, There is a significant amount of untapped potential in India's aviation business, and there is a pressing need to increase the number of flights that operate between India and the UAE in order to meet the ever-increasing demand from both residents of the UAE and visitors from India.

The airlines based in the United Arab Emirates are aiming to capitalise on any opportunity that presents itself in order to introduce new flights to India, which is expected to overtake the United States as the country with the most people living in it this year. Due to the rapidly expanding demand, Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO of the Dubai-based airline flydubai, has requested that there be additional flights between Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and India.
He went on to say that India has a significant amount of potential to provide, provided that the government is willing to implement an open-sky policy. "I believe that someplace, somehow, business to India is being undermined by the lack of the kind of aggression that is required." He expressed his optimism that "decision-makers will be encouraged to open up the aviation sector" as a result of the growing number of airlines that are entering the market and purchasing new aircraft.
As an illustration of the possibilities, he stated that, for instance, if Delhi were to open up the aviation sector, flydubai could fly to a total of forty different places within India.
It has been claimed that the United Arab Emirates has requested that New Delhi enhance the maximum number of seats between the two countries to around 65,000 a week from 50,000 a week. According to a number of sources, the United Arab Emirates reportedly made an effort to raise the number of seats available to India each week from 65,000 to 115,000.
Air India took into account the robust economic expansion of India's economy and aviation sector when it placed a massive order with Airbus and Boeing. The deal was for 470 planes with a total value of $80 billion, and it was meant to both modernise Air India's fleet and satisfy the rising demand for local and international travel.
Air India announces that it will increase the number of flights it operates to Dubai
In April, Air India stated that it would be boosting the number of flights it operates to Dubai from both Delhi and Mumbai. This was done as part of a strategy to harmonise the network of both Air India and Air India Express, as well as to meet the growing demand.
Air India, which is owned by Tata, has increased its flight schedule to operate up to ten times more flights each day between Delhi and Dubai (in both directions), including the addition of a new service that will begin on April 29, 2023. Air India is increasing the number of flights it runs between Mumbai and Dubai by up to six times a day (in both directions). This implies that there are eight flights each way to and from Dubai departing from the two Indian cities during the majority of the week.
It is estimated that there are 3.5 million non-resident Indians who are currently working and living in the Emirates. As a result of a shortage of flights between the UAE and India, airfares significantly increase throughout the travel seasons.
According to Ghaith Al Ghaith, airfares have reached their highest point and are likely to remain at the same level until the summer. This is mostly due to the supply and demand issue, since the number of people travelling domestically and internationally is growing at an exponential rate.
Additionally, Emirates President Sir Tim Clark requested to the Indian government earlier that there be an increase in the number of seats available between the two countries.
A number of blue-collar workers will benefit from an increase in flight frequency, thus TP Sudheesh, the general manager of Deira Travels, has urged the authorities in India to make this change.
"The Indian government ought to grant permission to further flight operations to either international or domestic airlines operating in the country. And a large number of foreign airlines are prepared to operate on India routes; hence, the moment has come for the Indian government to take an active role in meeting the demand for its services, he stated.
He went on to say that certain airlines had recently begun using aircraft with a lesser seating capacity, which resulted in increased airfares for passengers. This was notably true for flights bound for the state of Kerala in southern India.
