Air India adds its fourth Indian connection to London

Air India launched its fourth connection from India to London on 17 November, the day in which it began flights from Bengaluru (BLR) to London Heathrow (LHR). The 8,042-kilometre connection will be served three times weekly using 787-8s. Air India faces direct competition on the airport pair from incumbent carrier British Airways, with the oneworld member already offering a daily flight on the route. Bengaluru becomes the fourth Indian airport in Air India’s network to see a direct connection to Heathrow after Delhi, Mumbai and Ahmedabad.
