India to consider Emirates, Flydubai’s demand for more seat entitlements

: Monday, February 24 - 2014 @ 00:33

India’s civil aviation ministry is set to consider a demand by Emirates Airline and Flydubai for an additional 20,000 seats per week, a one third increase from the 54,200 seats that the Dubai-based carriers already have, Business Standard has reported. “We are looking at a revision in bilaterals with Dubai considering the potential demand in the sector over the next two to three years,” said a civil aviation ministry official. “We are looking at giving them a 20% increase (10,800 seats),” the official said. If approved, the move would help Emirates to launch A-380 services at least from Delhi and Mumbai, after the Indian government allowed their entry in January.
