AI launches new flights to six major US & European cities

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 23 Nov 2022, 04:46 pm

New Delhi/IBNS: Air India on Wednesday launched new flights connecting Mumbai with New York, Paris and Frankfurt, and restarted non-stop flights connecting Delhi with Copenhagen, Milan and Vienna.

The new Mumbai-New York air carrier service will operate daily to John F Kennedy International Airport using B777-200LR aircraft, and will commence from Feb. 14, 2023, a statement from the airline said.

The expansion move comes alongside the progress AI has made in augmenting its newly leased aircraft, and the return of existing steelbird to active service, as per an Air India release.

It will complement Air India’s existing daily service from Delhi to New York area’s John F Kennedy International Airport and four weekly flights to Newark Liberty airport.

This takes Air India’s India-US frequency to 47 non-stop flights per week.

Towards Europe, the Indian flag carrier airline will add four weekly Delhi-Milan route starting from Feb. 1, 2023, and thrice-weekly flights on each of Delhi-Vienna and Delhi-Copenhagen, commencing from Feb. 18 and March 1, next year respectively, an official statement said.

From Mumbai, new flights are also planned to Paris (3 weekly) and Frankfurt (4 weekly) starting next quarter.

Commenting on this expansion, CEO and MD Air India Campbell Wilson said: “A key element of our five-year transformation plan, Vihaan.AI, is to strengthen India’s global network, connecting India’s major cities with even more destinations.

"The introduction of these new non-stop flights to New York, Milan, Vienna, Copenhagen, Paris and Frankfurt, is another step in that journey."
