Indian Ocean Flights

Do you plan on flying across the Indian Ocean? Or are you heading to one of the stunning islands which can be found within the Indian Ocean? Discover the best airlines to fly with!  

What are Trans Indian Ocean Flights?

 

The Indian Ocean is the third-largest of the world's oceans, responsible for about 19.8% of the water on the Earth's surface. The ocean is bounded by Asia to the north, Africa to the west, and Australia to the east. Trans Indian Ocean flights are those which fly over the Indian ocean.

India is in a particularly central location, at the head of the Indian Ocean. The country is a key gateway and thriving transportation hub, with long-established contact via sea and air with Europe, Africa and West Asia from its Western coast, Australia from its Southern coast, and South and South-Eastern Asia from its Eastern coast.
