Air India Announces 13 Flights Between India and UK From THIS Date

After the UK lifted travel bans from India, Air India has announced non-stop flights between India and the United Kingdom from August 16. Sharing the detailed flight schedule, the national carrier said that it will operate 13 weekly flights connecting London with six Indian cities — Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Amritsar, and Kochi from August 16 to September 1, 2021. It must be noted that the flights will be operated under the air bubble arrangements between the two countries.

The announcement on the flight schedule from Air India comes after the United Kingdom moved India from the country’s ‘Red’ to “Amber” list, which means Indians can now travel to the United Kingdom without mandatory 10-day hotel quarantine.

However, it also must be noted that there has been an outcry in the past week over steep airfares on India-UK routes. Addressing this issue, the Ministry of Civil Aviation, Government of India tweeted: “There are media reports claiming India-UK one-way economy class fares have touched Rs. 4 lakhs. These reports have no proven basis. The veracity of Sh Sanjeev Gupta’s claim has been thoroughly checked by the DGCA.”

Giving further details, the aviation ministry said that the fares offered on the Delhi-London sector (Economy class) range from 1.03-1.21 lakhs for Indian carriers and 1.28-1.47 lakhs for UK carriers for travel during August 2021.
