Aloke Singh, the Managing Director of Air India Express and AirAsia India, expressed his excitement about the start of the airline’s international operations from Goa, which is one of India’s most famous tourist destinations.

According to Singh, Air India Express is proud to be the sole airline providing direct connectivity between Goa and Dubai. Additionally, AirAsia India, which is preparing to merge with Air India Express, currently offers 13 daily non-stop flights to and from Goa, linking five cities within India.

He added, “We aspire to contribute to the success story of tourism in the state and continue our unwavering dedication to providing exceptional service to our customers.”
