An Indian airline has launched a new service connecting Kolkata with Kanpur.

Brits looking to explore India this summer may be glad to learn that Air India has launched new flights to Kolkata from the West Bengal capital of Kanpur.

Previously, Air India passengers looking to reach Kolkata from Kanpur would have to fly via Lucknow, but the new service means you can get between the two cities much faster.

Air India flights on this route will run six times per week, with only Sundays excluded, and a 70-capacity plane is being used on the triangular route from Delhi to Kanpur to Kolkata.

Seats on the Kanpur to Kolkata flights are available for the introductory fare of just 3,650 rupees (£50), while the Delhi to Kanpur and Delhi to Kolkata routes are both available for 4,000 rupees each way.

Air India operates flights to 51 domestic destinations, as well as international flights to the USA, Europe and Australia.
