State-owned, Air India is set to deploy all of its Boeing 777 aircraft for operating flights connecting India with key global destinations like Hong Kong, Seoul, Frankfurt and New York by early September 2012.
An Air India official revealed the airline is all set to resume its flights to Hong Kong, Seoul and Osaka in the first phase from August 21, 2012. Besides, the carrier will also re-start flights to Frankfurt on September 1, 2012, and flights to New York on September 4, 2012.
Furthermore, Air India is looking to tempt passenger with special return fare on flights between Delhi and Hong Kong. The airline is also offering special return fares on flights to New York, Frankfurt and Paris.
India’s national carrier will also enhance the frequency of its Delhi-Paris and Mumbai-London flights, turning them into a daily flight service.
The information of the national carrier reinstating and enhancing many flight services to global destinations comes as great news for the airline’s fans who were having to connect to India from these destinations by booking flights with other airlines. Besides, pressing all aircrafts into service will sure ease off the availability of seats on individual routes.
With the airline’s strong desire to reclaim its share on the global routes, travellers may also expect cheap fares and other discount deals on flights to India.
Air India has eight Boeing 777 long range and twelve Boeing 777 extended range aircrafts in its fleet that were grounded during the prolonged industrial action that the airline recently faced.
