Air India, which is now getting on top of its international network after having regained the financial firepower to expand (via privatisation), announced a return to a station it last served in 1997.
Air India adds Amsterdam to its route network.
Air India has added Amsterdam to its European network, making it the eighth continental European destination to be served by Air India once it resumes flights to Amsterdam. The route is currently operated by KLM, with Air India adding four weekly flights to the sector in the coming month.
The service to Amsterdam will take Air India’s frequency of non-stop flights between India and Europe to 77 per week. The airline will deploy its Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft, which can accommodate 256 passengers across two classes – 238 in economy and 18 in business class.
Here is the schedule of the flight. It will operate on Monday/Wednesday/Friday/Sunday, with an afternoon departure from Delhi and the return trip from Amsterdam starting late evening.
Air India’s Chief Executive Officer, Campbell Wilson, commented,
With the launch of this new non-stop flight to Amsterdam, Air India adds further breadth to our long-haul network and more options for our customers. Together with the three other European routes started in recent months and others to come, it supports our objective of establishing Delhi as a significant international hub.
Air India has added the following flights to Europe, which have been all resumption of prior routes:
- Resumed Delhi – Milan and v.v. on February 1, 2023 (operates 4X weekly)
- Resumed Delhi – Vienna and v.v. on February 18, 2023 (operates 3X weekly)
- Resumed Delhi – Copenhagen and v.v. on March 1, 2023 (operates 3X weekly)
Air India will head to Amsterdam after 26 years. A four times per week flight will operate between Delhi and Amsterdam, effective June 11, 2023. The airline will operate with a Boeing 787-8.
