Gurugram/IBNS: Air India, a Tata-owned global airline service, has initiated the deployment of its recently acquired Boeing 777 aircraft to serve all three non-stop routes from Mumbai to the United States.

The newly updgraded aircraft will serve New York JFK Airport, Newark Liberty Airport in New Jersey, and San Francisco, guaranteeing that all North American locations that Air India serves from Mumbai now have contemporary seats and in-flight entertainment systems for all classes.

One of the two daily flights connecting Mumbai and London Heathrow (AI130/AI131) will now operate using the new B777 aircraft, providing passengers with modern-generation interiors, including the introduction of First Class cabins.

The B777-200LR aircraft operating on the routes to San Francisco and New York-JFK are configured with 28 Business Class seats, 48 Premium Economy seats, and 212 Economy Class seats.

In contrast, the B777-300ER aircraft serving Newark Liberty Airport and London offers 8 first-class seats, 40 business-class seats, and 280 economy-class seats.

Campbell Wilson, MD & CEO of Air India, stated, “We are delighted to now offer an elevated experience on all routes from Mumbai to the United States and to upgrade one of our London services."

"This is part of the ongoing product transformation underway at Air India, with 7 new B777s inducted over the last year to be followed by 4 more, along with 6 new Airbus A350s, over the coming months."

"All of these aircraft feature much-improved interiors and pave the way for the full interior upgrade of our entire widebody fleet, commencing in the middle of 2024," he said.
