THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: RAK Airways, a national airline of United Arab Emirates, is awaiting the Civil Aviation Ministry's clearance for stepping up its India operations by launching flights to more cities including Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi, Bangalore and Hyderabad.
"We have approached the Indian ministry concerned for permission to operate our services to more Indian cities.If the proposal is cleared, we will be able to carry out the plans by the year-end," the airline's CEO Omar Jahameh told a press meet here today.
"The airline had strong reasons to step up India operations as there was a large community of NRIs working in the northern emirate of Ras Al Khaimah and also on account of increasing tourism and business opportunities between the two countries," he said.
"More than two million Indians are working in UAE, of whom 25 per cent live and work in the airline's northern home of Ras Al Khaimah," Jahameh said.
The flights launched by RAK from Calicut in Kerala about a year ago had evoked very good response and the frequency had since then been increased to five flights a week. The UAE visa package, which offered a visitor visa with return airfare, had also been very positively received,he said.
Jahameh and office-bearers of the Indian Association of Ras Al Khaimah also met Chief Minister Oommen Chandy seeking his support for the airline's proposal.
