AIR INDIA’S LONDON STANSTED TO MUMBAI AFTER AMRITSAR
Going from London to the Golden temple for the Sikh faithful just got more convenient. Three months after Air India launched its inaugural service from London Stansted to Amritsar in Punjab- the only direct flight from London airports, the route will fly three times a week from 21 February for the season, using a 256-seat Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
“This new route is further evidence of the growing demand from businesses and passengers across the region for more long-haul connections from their local airport,” said Ken O’Toole, London Stansted’s chief executive. “We know that 200,000 people from our region travel to Mumbai every year from other airports, so this new service will not only provide greater choice but help cut down unnecessary journeys and provide a shot in the arm to the regional and national economies.”
