The direct flight is expected to boost trade and tourism between Srinagar and the UAE, besides meeting the demand for convenient travel options between the two cities, which are popular tourist destinations as well, Go First said.

Besides Srinagar, the direct flights from Sharjah will offer seamless connections to Chandigarh, Delhi, Jammu, Leh and Mumbai, and vice-versa, the airline said.
