Flights to various locations from the UAE, including Kozhikode, Indore, and Goa, have begun to be cancelled and realigned as of March 25. According to Khaleej Times, the following operations have been carried out by Tata Group, the owner of Air India and Air India Express. After receiving a $2.17 billion bid to purchase Air India, Tata Group chose to realign routes that would be profitable for the new owner. This decision was made in January 2022. To modernise its fleet and target long-haul routes, Air India declared last month that it would spend $70 billion to purchase 220 Boeing planes and 250 Airbus planes. The UAE-India route is suffering greatly despite the new fleet buying.

Many travel agents have been also undergoing loss due to this reduced availability of flights during the demand period. They have urged the government to increase flights during the massive outbound traffic growth. It is the need of the hour as stated by many agents and travellers who usually travel on this route.
