Air India yesterday (15 August) resumed its six weekly direct flight schedule to Delhi and Amritsar from Birmingham Airport.
The carrier has restarted connections following a short period of reduced frequencies due to airspace restrictions out of the airline’s control.
Direct services are available three times weekly to Delhi and onwards to Amritsar each Monday, Wednesday and Sunday, and three times weekly to Amritsar and onwards to Delhi each Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.
The flights are operated by Air India’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner, with 18 seats in the business class cabin and 238 in economy.
Over the last six years, some 750,000 passengers have used Air India services from Birmingham, and with the resumption of this six weekly schedule, there are 3,000 seats available between India and Birmingham each week on the non-stop flights.
Air India’s schedule resumed on Indian Independence Day.
