Air India strengthens domestic connectivity with 24 additional flights

Network expansion to boost metro to metro connectivity

Bangalore, 11th August, 2022: Air India, India’s leading airline, today announced an increase of 24 new flights on its domestic network with effect from August 20, 2022. The expansion in its domestic connectivity will cater to growing traffic between India’s major metros and facilitate convenient travel over the upcoming festive season. The strengthening of domestic connectivity has been enabled as more aircraft return to service. 

The additional 24 flights include two new frequencies from Delhi to Mumbai, Bengaluru and Ahmedabad, and from Mumbai to Chennai and Hyderabad, as well as one new frequency on the Mumbai – Bengaluru route and Ahmedabad – Pune route. 

These additions will provide flyers more travel options between key metros in the late afternoon and evening, and take Air India’s daily frequencies to 10 flights each way between Delhi – Mumbai, 7 flights each way between Delhi – Bengaluru,  4 flights each way  between Mumbai – Bengaluru, and Mumbai – Chennai and 3 flights each way on Mumbai – Hyderabad and Delhi – Ahmedabad routes. 

Commenting on the network expansion, Mr. Campbell Wilson, MD and CEO, Air India, said, “This expansion bolsters connectivity between key metros, and improves connectivity between Air India’s domestic and international networks. Over the past six months, Air India has been working closely with our partners to return aircraft to service, and we are delighted that this effort is now bearing fruit.”

Air India’s narrowbody fleet currently stands at 70 aircraft, of which 54 are currently serviceable.  The remaining 16 aircraft will progressively return to service by early 2023.

Appended is the list of 24 flights that have been added on key routes as aircraft return to service:

About Air India:

Founded by the legendary JRD Tata, Air India had pioneered India’s aviation sector and the airline’s history is, in fact, synonymous with the annals of civil aviation in India. Since its first flight on October 15, 1932, Air India has spread its wings to become a major international airline with a network across USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Far-East, South-East Asia, Australia and the Gulf. The airline also has an extensive domestic network, including far-flung areas of India’s North-East, Ladakh, Andaman & Nicobar Islands. Air India has been a member of Star Alliance, the largest global airline consortium, since July, 2014.

India’s first international budget carrier, Air India Express was launched in 2005 to meet the need for affordable services on short and medium haul routes- connecting smaller towns directly to the Gulf and South East Asia regions. After 69 years as a Government-owned enterprise, Air India and Air India Express were reacquired by the Tata group in January 2022. Post the acquisition, time-bound transformation milestones have been laid out and a series of steps have been initiated towards achieving the same in order to ensure Air India once again emerges as a world class airline.

About the Tata group:

Founded by Jamsetji Tata in 1868, the Tata group is a global enterprise, headquartered in India, comprising 30 companies across ten verticals. The group operates in more than 100 countries across six continents, with a mission ‘To improve the quality of life of the communities we serve globally, through long-term stakeholder value creation based on Leadership with Trust’.

Tata Sons is the principal investment holding company and promoter of Tata companies. Sixty-six percent of the equity share capital of Tata Sons is held by philanthropic trusts, which support education, health, livelihood generation, and art and culture.

Each Tata company or enterprise operates independently under the guidance and supervision of its own board of directors. There are 29 publicly-listed Tata enterprises with a combined market capitalisation of $314 billion (INR 23.4 trillion) as on December 31, 2021.
