Dubai, Aug 8 (IANS/WAM) The UAE’s low-cost airline flydubai Monday announced its flights to Ahmedabad — the world’s third fastest growing city and the airline’s 44th destination.

Flights from Dubai to India’s seventh largest city will operate weekly on Saturdays from Aug 27. A one-way ticket will cost about 550 dirhams.

Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO of flydubai, said: “Ahmedabad is the largest city in Gujarat and I am delighted to be able to announce today (Monday) that it will become the third Indian city on flydubai’s rapidly expanding network.

“The growing Indian expatriate population in the UAE and the increasing reliance our two nations have on each other for our economic growth and development, makes the introduction of quality, affordable direct flights between the UAE and India’s numerous secondary airports very important.

“I would like to thank the Indian authorities for granting us the permission to fly to this exciting destination. flydubai looks forward to extending a very warm welcome to the passengers travelling between Ahmedabad and Dubai and we look forward to being able to extend our service to other Indian cities in the future.”
