India to ensure its airlines get slots in Dubai

India is going to link granting of slots to its airlines at constrained foreign airports to giving more flying rights or bilaterals to these countries. India will soon hold talks with Dubai for increasing bilaterals and the issue will come up in the deliberations, aviation secretary R N Choubey told TOI.

“Dubai is a slot constrained airport and our airlines have spoken about difficulties in getting slots for more flights there. This issue will be a part of the bilateral discussions we have with Dubai,” said Choubey.

“We will first assess their demand (for more flying rights for Dubai). After that we will speak to the civil aviation authority of Dubai. The process will be completed in a way that is a winwin for our airlines and consumers,” said Choubey.
