If you heard the rumours last year that there might a luxury liner that will take passengers from Dubai to Kochi (and vice-versa), I’m here to tell you that they are true! The central government is all set to introduce a lavish cruise line that will connect the picturesque Kerala to our dazzling city of Dubai. Say goodbye to the hefty price tags on flight tickets and get ready to cruise in style. Here are all the details you need to know about it.
Government’s Approval Of The Beypore (Kozhikode)-Kochi-Dubai Cruise Line
The Indian government, has recognised the need for a more enjoyable travel option, and has given the green light to the Beypore (Kozhikode)-Kochi-Dubai luxury cruise line. This move aims to boost tourism and provide a welcome alternative to the sky-high costs of flying from Kerala to Dubai, with ticket prices ranging from AED 500 to a staggering AED 1700 (equivalent to Rs 11,000 to Rs 40,000 – AED prices are also based on the current exchange rate, values may fluctuate over time) for a one-way journey. If this plan materialises, it would mark India’s inaugural passenger ship service to a foreign land.
Your Ticket To Affordable Luxury
If you’re an NRI who has been yearning for an economical way to journey from Kerala to Dubai, then your wish has been granted! Responding to the constant demand, Union Shipping Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has revealed that the wheels are already in motion to kickstart this cruise ship service. This initiative not only offers a more budget-friendly option for Indian expats in the UAE but also paves the way for a significant change in the way we travel.
