One may not associate the aggressiveness with the state carrier, but Air India has surely taken the lead when it comes to operating on one of the busiest international routes this winter.
The airline will fly to London from eight Indian cities, starting January 1. These include Kochi and Goa. While Air India had started services from the two popular tourist destinations – Kochi in August and Goa from mid-October – this is the first time they feature in the carrier’s winter schedule.
The Kochi service began as part of the Vande Bharat repatriate exercise.
While the main hubs of Delhi and Mumbai continue to feature in Air India’s schedule, others include Amritsar, Kolkata, Ahmedabad and Bengaluru.
