DXB welcomes Air India's Dreamliner flight from Kochi

By Staff

Dubai International (DXB) welcomed Air India’s first Boeing 787 Dreamliner to arrive from the South Indian city of Kochi in Kerala with a traditional water salute yesterday afternoon.

The crew and representatives of the airline were welcomed at a cake cutting ceremony at Concourse D. Air India is one of the seven airlines that connect Dubai to 19 destinations across India – DXB’s top destination country with 11.4 million passengers in 2016.

On average there are 78 daily flights between DXB and India, or a weekly average of 546 flights.

The flight which arrived is Air India's second Dreamliner service connecting India and Dubai, as the carrier already operates a Dreamliner on the Delhi-Dubai sector.
