TD Editor

Seven of the 20 busiest international air travel routes from India in May were to Dubai, according to data provided by aviation analytics company Cirium.

However, the busiest international route in India in May 2022 was Mumbai-Dubai with 406 flights. Not just that, the second busiest international route in May 2022 was Delhi-Dubai with 332 flights. There were 167, 152, 136, 133 and 131 flights on the Cochin-Dubai, Hyderabad- Dubai, Chennai-Dubai, Bengaluru- Dubai and Calicut-Dubai routes in May 2022 respectively, the data showed. These seven routes to the city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) were among the top 20 international air travel routes connecting India in May 2022, it mentioned.

In May 2019 — before the COVID-19 pandemic dramatically impacted the global aviation sector — only two of the top 20 international air travel routes from India were to Dubai, according to the data.

COVID-19 had significantly curtailed international travel since the beginning of 2020 to the beginning of this year. Its impact is now receding and airlines across the world have largely resumed their international flights. In May 2019, the busiest international air travel route from India was Kolkata-Dhaka with 301 flights, the data mentioned.
