New Delhi: Air India on Wednesday launched new flights connecting Mumbai with New York, Paris and Frankfurt, and the resumption of non-stop flights connecting Delhi with Copenhagen, Milan and Vienna.
The new Mumbai-New York service will operate daily to John F Kennedy International Airport using B777-200LR aircraft, and will commence from February 14, 2023, a statement from the airline said.
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.
To Europe, Air India will add four weekly Delhi-Milan route starting from February 1, 2023, and thrice-weekly flights on each of Delhi-Vienna and Delhi-Copenhagen, commencing from February 18 and March 1, 2023 respectively, the statement said.
From Mumbai, new flights are also planned to Paris (3 weekly) and Frankfurt (4 weekly) starting next quarter.
Commenting on this expansion, Campbell Wilson, CEO and MD, Air India, 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, which will accelerate as our aircraft fleet expands. We look forward to welcoming guests and sharing Air India’s warm Indian hospitality with them.”
