Air India Continues Expansion Amid Jet Airways’ Demise

Despite being in a precarious financial situation, Air India is not an airline to miss an opportunity. As the gaps in capacity from Jet Airways’ collapse become clear to see, the Indian flag carrier is laying on a number of new routes for the winter season. The latest announcements include new routes to Kuwait City and Doha, as well as increased frequency to Dubai and a return to Nairobi, where the carrier last flew in 2010.
Air India has registered schedule changes which show the airline expanding into the Middle East, as well as resuming flights to Nairobi.
As per reporting by Routes Online, Air India will add two new routes to Doha from Delhi and from Mumbai to Kuwait City, starting in October and running throughout the winter period. In addition to this, the carrier is increasing services to Dubai from Mumbai from 14 flights a week to 17.
According to the Routes report, the Delhi to Doha route will operate four times a week, with the schedule looking like this:
*Delhi to Doha: Leaves Delhi at 14:20 on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, arriving at Doha at 18:35. On Fridays it leaves Delhi at 15:20, arriving in Doha at 19:35.
*Doha to Delhi: Leaves Doha at 19:35 on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, arriving at Delhi at 23:30. On Fridays, it leaves Doha at 20:35, arriving in Delhi at 00:20 (+1 day).
The route will launch on the 29th October 2019, and will be operated by an Airbus A321.
