Emirates extends flight services to India

Emirates Airline has announced that it will expand its services to and from India as the country's aviation sector becomes on one of the fastest growing in the world.

The Dubai-based carrier will add another 22 weekly flights to its Indian schedule, bringing the total number of weekly flights to over 185 over the course of the summer and winter periods.

"Emirates has a robust global network spanning over 100 cities in more than 60 countries and is well-placed to connect India to the world," said Majid Al Mualla, Emirates' vice-president of commercial operations for west Asia and the Indian Ocean.

He added that Emiratis are fuelling India's burgeoning tourism industry, with many travelling to the subcontinent because of its exceptional healthcare facilities.

Emirates has also recently unveiled its new Kids Go Free promotion as the summer travel season gets underway.

The new deal offers free flights to one child and free accommodation to up to two children when visiting Dubai with two fare-paying adults.ADNFCR-2019-ID-19191383-ADNFCR
