DDE Chairman suggests direct flights from Surat to Dubai

According to Ahmed Bin Sulayem, head of the Dubai Diamond Exchange (DDE), direct flights between Surat and Dubai will further increase trade between the manufacturing and trading centres.

At a roadshow in India, Bin Sulayem, who is also the executive chairman and CEO of DMCC, asserted that there was a strong business rationale for direct flights.

He is urging the government-owned low-cost carrier Flydubai to expand connections and launch a new service.”I am pushing Flydubai, and I’ll push harder even to have a direct flight to Surat because I see the business case for it,” he said to the Indian television channel CNBC-TV18.

According to him, the DDE is housed in the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre, which has 3,700 Indian companies, many of which are in the diamond industry.
