Go First’s inaugural direct flight from Kochi to Abu Dhabi took off on June 28 at 20.05, marking the start of the new route.
Formerly known as GoAir, Go First will operate three direct flights per week between Kochi and Abu Dhabi. Return fares start from Rs15,793 (US$200).
Kaushik Khona, CEO of Go First, said: “Abu Dhabi has always been a focus city for us. We are pleased to inaugurate new non-stop flights connecting Kerala with Abu Dhabi, which will not only benefit the blue-collar workers, but also the travellers who are planning to visit the UAE and Kerala during the summer holidays.”
Other recently commenced daily direct flights by Go First include Kochi to Kuwait and Kochi to Muscat.
