Air India launches new non-stop flights from India to six US, European cities

In an effort to broaden its reach, Air India announced on Wednesday the beginning of new flights connecting Mumbai with New York, Paris, and Frankfurt as well as the restart of nonstop service between Delhi and Copenhagen, Milan, and Vienna.

“This expansion comes as the airline continues to make progress in augmenting its fleet with newly leased aircraft, and the return of existing aircraft to active service,” Air India said in a release.

Beginning on February 14, 2023, a new flight between Mumbai and New York City will fly daily to John F. Kennedy International Airport. With the addition of the additional trip, Air India will have 47 nonstop flights a week between India and the US, up from its current daily service from Delhi to John F. Kennedy International Airport and its four weekly flights to Newark Liberty airport.

From February 1, four additional weekly flights will operate on the Delhi-Milan route, and from February 18 and March 1, respectively, three additional weekly flights will operate on the Delhi-Vienna and Delhi-Copenhagen routes. Additionally, the airline has scheduled four additional weekly flights on the route between Mumbai and Frankfurt as well as three additional weekly flights on the Mumbai-Paris route. Air India’s B787-8 Dreamliner aircraft, which has 18 Business Class seats and 238 Economy Class seats, will fly these routes.

“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,” Campbell Wilson, CEO and MD, Air India, said in a statement.

“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.”
