Quote: UAE-based Emirates Airline has announced a further expansion of its India operation by adding 22 weekly flights as a support for the Indian government’s ambitious growth plan to attract 100 million travellers in 2010. The existing service of 163 flights per week to ten Indian gateways will be strengthened to 185 over the summer and winter periods. High demand routes - Ahmedabad, Chennai, Kolkata, Kozhikode and Thiruvananthapuram - will be the chief beneficiaries.
EK currently operates 163 flights per week to India; this will however, increase to 185 flights per week.
AMD from 8 flights per week to 14 flights (double-daily)
MAA from 19 flights per week to 21flights (triple-daily)
TRV from 8 flights per week to 12 flights
CCU from 7 flights per week to 12 flights
CCJ from 6 flights per week to 11 flights

A shame ATQ and PNQ aren't on....ATQ especially would do wonders for the BHX flights.
There are several cities not on the network that would do well for LCCs. But I wouldn't be surprised of the Indian government were to give EK some sort of incentive to provide service to these tertiary points, if they want to meet their ambitious growth plan !
