Air India celebrates 70th year of independence with non-stop route to London

Coinciding with its India's 70th year of independence the country's national airline is set to launch non-stop flights from London to Ahmedabad and Newark.

The services will commence on 15 August, reducing the journey time for up to three and a half hours, utilising Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
The airline expects the service to benefit the Gujarati community in the UK, who it says often visits family in India for weddings and to celebrate Diwali.
