Stansted Airport's first direct flight to India takes to the runway

Bollywood dancers greeted passengers as they boarded the airline's 256-seater Boeing 787 Dreamliner plane, which was also specially painted to commemorate the 550th anniversary of the birth of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder of Sikhism.

Stansted Airport's chief executive, Ken O'Toole, said: "We are delighted to welcome Air India to Stansted for the launch of our first ever scheduled service to India, and the only direct link between any London airport and Amritsar.

"This service is a great addition to our long-haul offer and a clear reflection of the huge demand that exists across north and east London and the East of England for convenient and affordable connections to India.

"We have made clear our ambition is to provide passengers with more choice and opportunities to travel long-haul from Stansted. Delivering this new exciting new service with Air India is another significant step in the right direction in meeting our goal."

The Air India service to Amritsar, running three times a week, joins the twice-daily Emirates service to Dubai that launched at Stansted last year. Flights to Amritsar will operate on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
