India’s National carrier Air India is all set to fly to new destinations starting February 2020. The airline has announced it’s operations to Doha and Stansted as new destinations. The airline will also add an additional service on the existing Mumbai to London Heathrow route.
Last year, Air India had commenced operations to cities like Nairobi, Kuwait and Colombo from Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, Mumbai and Stansted from Amritsar. We at Victor Tango Aviation were thrilled to be invited and be a part of the inaugural events. The airline has seen a positive response for these much needed sectors. Air India also had plans to start a direct flight between CSMIA, Mumbai and Hong Kong. However, due to the ongoing Novel Corona virus situation, the launch of this flight has been delayed. As a precautionary measure, Air India has even suspended operations to Shanghai and Hong Kong from other airports in India.
