Air India launches six new destinations to Europe and USA

Air India has announced the resumption of non-stop flights between Delhi, Milan, Copenhagen and Vienna. On February 14 next year, the carrier will open direct flights from Mumbai to John F. Kennedy Airport in New York. To this end, Air India plans to increase its fleet by leasing new aircraft and re-entering old ones that were previously retired.

Air India is in need of more pilots and cabin crew as it expands internationally. The airline is trying to address this by recruiting foreign pilots and offering voluntary retirement for flight attendants through its Voluntary Retirement Retirement (VRS) program for permanent workers. Offer valid until January 31, 2023.

So, Air India will start a direct service between Mumbai and New York. This brings the airline's total weekly non-stop flights between India and the US to 47. The carrier currently operates daily flights from Delhi to New York and four flights a week to Newark Liberty Airport.

From 1 February 2023 Air India will launch flights between Delhi and Milan four a week. On February 18, the airline will begin a program from Delhi to the Austrian capital Vienna with three weekly flights, and on March 1 — from Delhi to Copenhagen 4 times a week.

It is also known that starting next quarter, new flights to Paris three times a week and Frankfurt four times a week will also be available from Mumbai. For all of these flights, Air India will fly a B787-8 Dreamliner aircraft with 18 Business Class and 238 Economy seats.

As a result, Air India will operate non-stop flights to seven destinations across Europe, with 48 weekly flights to the UK and 31 weekly flights to the continent.
