- six destinations across India
Air India Express flights, wholly subsidiary of Air India, arriving to and from the UAE capital are now arriving and departing from Terminal 1 at Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH). Originally the airline departed from Terminal 1, and arrived to Terminal 2.
The transition from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 for the arrivals occurred on September 30 and is in line with Abu Dhabi Airports’ commitment to ensuring quality service and a seamless passenger experience.
The Indian subcontinent remains one of the most popular destinations for travellers departing from AUH, reflecting the close cultural and economic ties between the UAE and India. The Indian flag carrier operates seven daily flights between Abu Dhabi and six destinations in India, including New Delhi, Cochin, Kannur, Mangalore, Trivandrum and Calicut.
Ahmed Al Shamsi, Acting Chief Operations Officer at Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “At Abu Dhabi Airports we are committed to enriching passenger experiences and providing world class services. As one of our closest partners, we are pleased to announce Air India Express’ relocation to Terminal 1 and look forward to ensuring its guests enjoy a convenient and entertaining travel experience through Abu Dhabi International Airport.”
