Air India To Begin Kochi-Doha Flights This Month

The Indian flag carrier Air India is connecting Kochi, Kerala, to Doha in Qatar with non-stop flights beginning on October 23rd. The commercial hub of the province of Kerala will see daily services to the capital of Qatar. The launch of the new service is part of the airline’s plan to increase connectivity within India and also between other countries in the region. The airline is on a mission of turning around its old glory under the leadership of the Tata Group.

Kochi is the financial and commercial capital of the state of Kerala. The most populous city in the province has seen tremendous industrial growth in recent years, with heavy federal and private investments in almost all industrial sectors. Kochi has become one of the fastest-growing Tier-II cities in India. With the presence of a major port, the city is heavily involved in trade in the Middle East, including Qatar.

Air India aims to benefit from the existing economic ties, connecting Kochi to the Qatari capital. The new flight is expected to further strengthen existing operations between the two cities while providing increased flying options for business and leisure travelers.

The airline has put out the following flight schedule for its new flights between Kochi and Doha. The flight schedule is for a once-daily flight effective from October 23rd. All times are local.

Flight AI953 - Kochi (COK) to Doha (DOH): Departs at 01:30 and arrives at 03:45 (4 hours 45 minutes)

Flight AI954 - Doha (DOH) to Kochi (COK): Departs 04:45 and lands at 11:35 (4 hours 20 minutes)

The airline plans to operate Airbus A320neo on the service. Air India’s typical A320neo is configured for 162 passengers, including 12 in the Business cabin and 150 in Economy. Bookings have already commenced for the new route between the two cities.
