It also said it was adding Ras-Al-Khaimah as its new destination in the Gulf region.

This is the first time since its launch in 2005 that the Kochi-based airline, the international budget arm of national carrier Air India, will be spreading its wings to the national capital.

The flights from Delhi are set to be launched from May 10 and are a part of the recently announced summer schedule of Air India Express, a release said.

The two new routes will be serviced by one of the six brand new Boeing 737 leased aircraft, which are being inducted in the Air India Express fleet, it said.

Air India Express will commence two new daily air services to Dubai and Sharjah from Mumbai from April 7 as part of its plan to increase connectivity to the Gulf from the commercial capital.

The frequency between Kozhikode and Dubai has also been doubled to two flights per day, it said, adding that a morning departure flight would now also be in service apart from the night departure flights.

In addition, Air India Express will also introduce two daily separate non-stop services between Kozhikode and Bahrain and Doha in the new schedule.
