Akasa Air Likely To Launch International Operations to Dubai

December 14, 2023

14 DEC | India's Akasa Air will likely begin international operations in Summer 2024 with direct services to Dubai as the airline has successfully secured daily slots to Dubai (DXB).

The airline has been eyeing international operations for quite some time, as they recently took delivery of their 20th aircraft, allowing them to begin operations to destinations outside India.

However, one more hurdle is left before the airline can begin Dubai services, which are bilateral rights (before an airline can operate international services to another country, the government must first negotiate a treaty level agreement with the destination country's government, known as bilateral rights agreements). All bilateral rights to the UAE have been exhausted, but with the ceasure of Go First's operations, the rights will likely be reassigned to Akasa Air.

Nonetheless, the airline was previously granted rights to other destinations in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar earlier in October, which could kickstart their international operations. 2024 will surely be an interesting year for the airline, as the airline expands its market to the Middle East and possibly Southeast Asia- posing as a competitor to major Indian airlines such as IndiGo.
