India-UAE Airfares Will Be Double In October And Here’s Why

The declining airfare between UAE-India in the month of august might double up by the month of October. Dussehra and Diwali, two upcoming Hindu holidays, have already started. On October 24, the Hindu celebration of Diwali will start, and on October 5 in India, Dussehra will be observed. During the festival season, schools will be closed for about two weeks. As the demands in the travel industry soar again, the airfares might level up.

Airfares To Soar By 40-50% Between UAE-India

The cost of a ticket from Delhi to Dubai will be approximately Dh930, up from the current Dh500 plus fee. Flights between Mumbai and Dubai will probably cost Dh800 next month as opposed to Dh550 at the moment. Travelling between Kochi and Dubai is already expensive, with most airlines costing more than Dh2,000 for one-way tickets. These are anticipated to soar to Dh3,500 in September. The cost of a flight from Thiruvananthapuram will almost treble, reaching Dh1,500.

Only by winter is Air India hoping to launch three times weekly flights from Dubai to Kolkata. Multiple new carriers will be entering the Indian aviation sector. Some of them might shortly target the UAE market. Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, a wealthy investor, supports the low-cost airline Akasa Air, which started selling tickets for its inaugural flights on August 7. On its new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, the carrier will operate its maiden network of 56 weekly flights. The route of this carrier would be between the western cities of Mumbai and Ahmedabad. The flights would also cover the southern towns of Bengaluru and Kochi.

The Indian aviation authority has granted Jet Airways an air operator’s licence for a relaunch in the third quarter of 2022. With a network of much more than 120 aircraft, Jet served numerous domestic and international locations.
