Mumbai: Air India will launch 24 new domestic flights starting this Saturday in order to increase connectivity between the top metro cities as demand for air tickets rises in the post-Covid era.

The new flights will allow more people to travel to major metro cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, and Chennai, among others.

"'The additional 24 flights include two new frequencies from Delhi to Mumbai, Bengaluru and Ahmedabad, and from Mumbai to Chennai and Hyderabad, as well as one new frequency on the Mumbai-Bengaluru route and Ahmedabad-Pune route," the airline said in a statement.

Air India MD and CEO Campbell Wilson had said, "Over the past six months, Air India has been working closely with our partners to return aircraft to service, and we are delighted that this effort is now bearing fruit."

The airline's narrow-body aircraft fleet stands at 70, of which 54 are currently serviceable. The remaining 16 aircraft will progressively return to service by early 2023, it added in a statement.
