The agreement will allow carriers in both the nations to add flights.
"The agreement, which had run into a controversy, received post-facto approval of the Union Cabinet at a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in New Delhi," The Hindu reported.
"The agreement would allow the designated carriers of India and Abu Dhabi to have 50,000 seat capacity each week. This increase of 36,670 seats would be carried out in a phased manner spread over a three-year period. While an additional 11,000 seats per week would be added to the existing 13,700 this year, another 12,800 seats per week would be added in 2014 and 12,870 more in 2015," the newspaper said.
