Air India will increase services to Dubai from June this year with the addition of twice weekly nonstop service from Ahmedabad.

The new flights will begin on June 11 and operate on the following timetable :

AI 727 (ops Fr/Su)

BOM d 0500
AMD a 0605 d 0710
DXB a 0840

Ahmedabad will become the tenth Indian gateway served by Air India from Dubai. The airline already provides service between Dubai and Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, Goa, Kozhikode, Lucknow, Kochi and Thiruvananthapuram.

Flights should be loaded for sale in various CRS systems during the week.

Air India is the flag carrier of India and operates a fleet consisting of 14 Boeing 747s and 18 Airbus 310s. The airline services 39 destinations in 19 countries on 4 continents with its own aircraft and codeshares to 11 additional destinations.

Finally, Ahmedabad is getting some respect. Considering the number of Gujaratis all over the world, the paucity of service to Ahmedabad was odd, to say the least. But now Air India has direct service to Ahmedabad from both London, and, now, Dubai. I heard Singapore is planning flights there as well. Things are looking up.

Considering the fact that Ahmedabad airport wasn't capable of handling anything larger than an A300 until just last year, it wasn't really that odd.

Air India has been operating a daily 744 same-aircraft service AMD-BOM-CDG-EWR from the day the airport was certified to receive 747s, with daily A310 feeder service to BOM before that.

Ahmedabad has nonstops to Heathrow, direct services to Paris and New York and upcoming nonstops to Dubai and Singapore. Hardly the sign of a city with paucity of service - especially considering how run-down the international terminal facilities are by all accounts.
