Air India’s domestic and international networks
Commenting on the network expansion, Campbell Wilson, MD, and CEO of Air India told: “This expansion bolsters connectivity between key metros and improves connectivity between Air India`s domestic and international networks. Over the past 6 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.
Meanwhile, by increasing the number of flights between Delhi and Vancouver, Tata-owned Air India is attempting to improve air connectivity between India and Canada. Instead of 3 times a week, the airline declared that it will now provide daily flight services between the 2 cities.
It should be mentioned that beginning on August 31, the new services will be available. The airline has taken this action to accommodate the growing number of tourists between the aforementioned cities.
The airline’s Boeing 777-300 ER aircraft will accommodate the more frequent flights. Additionally, the rising demand can be interpreted as a sign that consumer demand is recovering following the pandemic.
