Leading airline in India and Star Alliance member Air India today announced the beginning of 12 weekly flights to London Gatwick Airport and five extra services to London Heathrow Airport. Air India, the only scheduled airline to provide direct services to the UK’s second-largest airport, would run a thrice-weekly service from locations including Amritsar, Ahmedabad, Goa, and Kochi to Gatwick.
To Heathrow, Air India will add 5 additional weekly frequencies with Delhi increasing from 14 to 17 times a week and Mumbai from 12 to 14 times a week. Just like Heathrow airport, Gatwick also provides passengers with direct access to the UK’s motorway network which will facilitate the convenience of travel by car or coach to London and South-East England. Moreover, with 24×7 direct rail access from the South Terminal, passengers can reach Central London in less than half an hour.

This is part of the airline’s ongoing endeavour to spread its wings on the international aviation map, hence, increasing its market share on international routes. The robust enhancement of operations is one of the major pillars of Vihaan.AI, Air India’s transformational roadmap.
