There are some interesting trends in the airline business, especially affecting fares in and out of Dubai.
On 12 December 2008, Emirates, the Dubai-based airline, entered into an affiliation with Jet Airways to code share daily flights from Mumbai and New Delhi to Dubai in a move to offer better connectivity to its passengers.
On 7 January 2009 Kingfisher Airlines Ltd, India’s second biggest airline firm, announced it will introduce its first flight to West Asia connecting Bangalore with Dubai from 8th February, a move which prompted predictions that this which could fuel another round of fare cuts on the sector.
The predictions did not take long to be fulfilled for today (8 January 2009), Emirates Airline announced it has reduced air fares across all its destinations in India with immediate effect. To check out their ‘Bargain in India’ fares follow this link.
The airline has also slashed its economy class fares to other key destinations in Europe, North and South America, Africa, Far East, Australia and New Zealand.
It looks like the financial recession is leading many people to cut travel and international holidays in order to save what money they still have. For those who still have some spare cash it appears that international travel is getting cheaper, especially on routes in and out of the United Arab Emirates and India.
