These are divided between Dubai (62,500), Abu Dhabi (50,000), Sharjah (17,841) and Ras-Al-Khaimah (1,400).

If the proposal goes through, the new agreement will likely to lead more flights and flexibility in their operations and trigger a fresh round of negotiations for enhancement of bilateral rights between India and UAE.
