Mangaluru, Nov 10: The departure time of the daily Air India Express flight to Dubai from Bajpe Airport has been temporarily revised, Chellam Prasad, Air India Manager.
 
"Due to the Haj season, many Air India Express aircrafts have been used  to cater to the Haj pilgrims. Hence  the departure of Air India Express from Mangalore  has  been rescheduled to 10 am, instead of 12 noon. This arrangement will continue until the first week of January once Haj season is  over." informed Chellam Prasad.

However, there is no change in the depurture time from Dubai to Mangalore. When asked about the latest reports about Mangalore's direct connection to Saudi Arabian airports, she said that a clear picture would emerge only after the  Haj season  is over. At the moment there are no confirmed plans. she said.
 
Speaking about the  ongoing economic melt down, she said that it had  very little impact on Air India Express passenger flow from Gulf. "There is the  usual demand for seats, and all flights are reasonably booked  on Air India Express to Mangalore airport"
 
Although she could not confirm  if the Dubai - Mangalore timing would  remain the same even after the Haj rush,  reliable sources from Air India Express told daijiworld, that there will be a major re-shuffle in the departure timings from Dubai and Mangalore. It is believed that the Mangalore - Dubai flight is expected to take off during the evening hours, and Dubai - Mangalore flight is expected to depart at midnight  reaching Mangalore early morning. The formal announcement may be made  around first week of January 09, if approved by the Airport authority.
