Dubai: Air India plans to begin operations to 18 new destinations this summer of which three will include the Middle East, a senior airline official has said.

The new routes planned to the Gulf include a flight connecting Manama, Bahrain and Dammam to New Delhi while a direct flight from Dubai will connect Vishakapatnam in Andhra Pradesh, said Deepak Barara, Executive Director of Air India.

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.
