Dubai: Kingfisher Airlines, a leading Indian carrier run by flamboyant businessman Vijay Mallya, will start flying from Indian technology hub Bangalore to Dubai from June 25.
The airline had earlier planned to start services to the UAE in March, but the global economic slowdown delayed the launch.
"The conditions have improved now. It is a good time to connect Dubai and Bangalore with the summer travel season starting," said Vinay Nambiar, Kingfisher's area manager for the UAE, Qatar and Oman.
Kingfisher also plans to start flights to Abu Dhabi and a couple of other destinations in the Gulf region, he said.
The daily Dubai services will be operated using an A320 aircraft. Flights from Bangalore will depart at 6.30pm and land in Dubai at 8.55pm local time. The return flight will leave Dubai at 11.30pm and reach Bangalore at 4.45am.
