British Airways Doubles India Flights Amid Strong Demand

British Airways has doubled its flights out of India as the government further eases its capacity caps. Starting this Monday, BA is flying 20 weekly flights from five cities: New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, and Hyderabad. The Indian government has offered British carriers 34 weekly flights from India, with the remaining 14 going to Virgin Atlantic.

According to The Times Of India, British Airways has unveiled its new schedule from India, weeks before the lucrative university travel season kicks in. The decision also comes after India further increased weekly flights from the UK from 30 to 60 and now 68 every week. India’s move to the amber list has prompted a wave of travel in August, leaving passengers scrambling for limited seats.

British Airways has secured rights for 20 weekly flights out of India, flying from all five of its destinations. New Delhi will see daily flights through August before dropping to five times a week in September. Mumbai will see five weekly flights through the next two months.

Bangalore will also see five weekly flights in August before dropping to just two in September. Hyderabad will have three flights every week, and Chennai will only see services resume in September with twice-weekly flights.
