Air India boost flights from Birmingham Airport

Solihull Editorial 10th Oct, 2022   0

MORE PASSENGERS are set to fly to India as weekly flights from Birmingham have increased to six.

Air India is adding two additional weekly services from Birmingham Airport (BHX) to Amritsar and three new ones to Delhi.

The additional flights will be phased in between October and December this year.

Campbell Wilson, chief executive of Air India, said: “Adding frequency and improving connectivity from major Indian cities to more international destinations is a significant focus. It is a clear signal of our intent, and an early step towards a much bigger aspiration.”

The Covid pandemic led to flight frequency reducing between Birmingham and India from seven a week to just one.

Tom Screen, aviation director at the airport, said: “We’re doing backward somersaults of joy at the prospect of increasing our India flight frequency to six a week. So many of our customers want this. We’re thrilled it’s happening.”
