The distance between Pune and Mumbai will be reduced by more than 2.5 hours thanks to Air India’s new flights, which start on March 26.
In India, the flight from Mumbai to Pune is among the busiest. The daily flights from Pune to Mumbai and the other way around are very advantageous for those who go from Pune to Mumbai.
Air India flight
The largest city in Maharashtra is Mumbai, with Pune coming in second. Pune is known as an IT hub of India since it is home to various small and large businesses with offices and manufacturing facilities.
The city lacks international connectivity while being a thriving economic hub due to its poor airport infrastructure. The Indian Air Force and civil passengers both use the runway at Pune International Airport.

The flying movements are under the authority of the Indian Air Force, thus there is little possibility for growth. A serious space constraint would still exist even if the Air Force approved more flights.
The flight will be made on the airline’s revived 9W route using an Airbus A319 aircraft. Travelers from Pune will find it straightforward to visit other nations thanks to the trip to Mumbai.
