This new route aims to enhance global connectivity and meet the increasing demand for travel to Goa and Middle East. With triweekly flights, IndiGo aims to strengthen its connectivity in Abu Dhabi, adding to the existing flights from five major Indian cities: Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kochi, and Hyderabad. These additional routes will significantly improve accessibility and convenience for passengers travelling from North and West India to the cosmopolitan capital of the United Arab Emirates.
Mr Vinay Malhotra, Head of Global Sales at IndiGo, expressed, “Introducing an exciting development in our flight offerings, we are thrilled to announce new connections between North Goa (Mopa Airport) and Abu Dhabi.

With the addition of these flights, IndiGo will fly 52 times a week to Abu Dhabi from 8 cities in India, bringing the UAE even closer.

Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, is well-known for its luxurious shopping centers, stunning architecture, and cultural landmarks, including the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. The new connection to Abu Dhabi from Lucknow and Ahmedabad will improve access to tourist attractions such as Ferrari World, the Louvre Abu Dhabi, Yas Island, and more.

The launch of additional flights by IndiGo will provide travelers with more entertainment and travel options in Abu Dhabi.
