According to him, the recently cancelled Salalah-Thiruvananthapuram flight will also resume shortly.

There are currently 21 flights a week from Gulf countries to India.

There has been an overall improvement in the airlines bottom line with a near-double digit growth in net profit (9.89 percent) and a 20 percent growth in bilateral air traffic flow between India and the UAE, Barara was quoted as saying by Emirates 24/7.
