The carrier announced the launch of new daily non-stop flights between Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Kannur, a north Kerala district in India. This exciting development, set to take off on May 9, 2024, caters to the ever-increasing demand for travel between the two regions.

Strategic Move, Streamlined Travel

The new route marks a strategic move by IndiGo to expand its international network and cater to a flourishing travel market.

This strategic network expansion is expected to further strengthen the trade and tourism ties that bind India and the UAE.

A Catalyst for Tourism Growth

The new direct flights are poised to be a game-changer for tourism in both Kerala and Abu Dhabi. Travelers from both regions will have greater access to new experiences, fostering cultural exchange and economic growth.
