Business and tourist travellers from Ahmedabad have a reason to cheer as Gujarat government today announced that from November 14, an international flight connecting Ahmedabad and Abu Dhabi will be launched. While those flights that were discontinued on select international routes including Ahmedabad-London will also be resumed, informed a state government statement.

A state information department statement today informed that as a result of the initiatives taken by state Civil Aviation Minister Saurabh Patel, a high level delegation of the Union Civil Aviation Ministry had visited the State last month.
