Emirates and India

Building on a long-term relationship

Emirates flights to India started in October 1985, with ten flights per week from our Dubai hub to Delhi and Mumbai forming the base of our initial route network.

Since then, we have invested in and progressively grown our Indian operations. Today, we operate 185 flights to India every week serving ten destinations: Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Kozhikode, Mumbai and Thiruvananthapuram.
