Direct flights between Delhi-Sydney to start from November 15

India’s national-carrier Air India has announced plans to resume direct, non-stop flights between Delhi and Sydney from November 15. As per the reports, the flights will operate thrice a week. This move comes after the Australian flag-carrier Qantas announced to make new flights operational on the said route from December 6, which is after almost a decade.

Qantas will be resuming flight operations on the Sydney-Delhi route via Darwin, whereas flights from Delhi to Sydney would be operating non-stop.

Reportedly, Qantas will be initially operating flights between Sydney and Delhi thrice-a-week on its A330 aircraft, which will likely be increased to daily flights by end of the year. Reports have it that the flights would operate until at least late March 2022, which will then remain in place if there is sufficient demand.

India’s national carrier, while sharing this information via tweet, stated that booking would start from 1200 hours on Wednesday through booking offices, the Air India website, authorised travel agents, and booking offices.

As reported earlier, the New South Wales state of Australia will be opening borders for international travellers, without quarantine, starting from November 1, which will mark the full return of overseas travel after more than 19 months.

The said move will allow both the airlines to resume flight operations between India and Australia, which will be beneficial for tourists as India will also start issuing tourist visas for international travellers starting November 15.
