IndiGo has announced the addition of Jeddah and Dammam as its 17th and 18th international destinations. Under its international network, the low-cost carrier will also connect Mumbai with Abu Dhabi.
Starting from June 5, 2019, IndiGo will operate daily non-stop flights between Mumbai-Jeddah and Mumbai-Abu Dhabi. The Mumbai- Dammam service will commence from July 5, 2019.
International flight schedule:
|Flight No.||Departure||Arrival||Time of Departure||Time of Arrival||Frequency|
|6E 1835||Mumbai||Abu Dhabi||0620||0805||Daily|
|6E 1834||Abu Dhabi||Mumbai||2330||0420||Daily|
Commenting on this new launch, William Boulter, Chief Commercial Officer, IndiGo said, “We are strengthening Mumbai as a key travel hub for domestic and international connectivity from India. We are pleased to announce Jeddah and Dammam as our 17th and 18th international destinations effective June 05, 2019 and July 05, 2019 respectively.
“Jeddah being the commercial capital and the gateway for Haj, Dammam being the growth centre in Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi being a major cultural and commercial centre in UAE, are critical markets for strengthening our presence in the Middle-East. Mumbai is the commercial hub of India and we see great potential connecting the Middle-East with this city, further bolstering the extensive cultural, business and tourism links between India and the Middle East.”
Furthermore, to accommodate the seasonal pick up in travel demand and the shortfall in industry capacity, IndiGo will launch 20 additional domestic flights connecting Mumbai to different cities across India. The new domestic flights will be operational from April 15, 2019.
