Air India, India’s leading airline and a Star Alliance member, today announced the launch of 12 weekly flights to London Gatwick Airport and five additional services to London Heathrow Airport. To Gatwick, Air India will operate a thrice-a-week service from cities such as Amritsar, Ahmedabad, Goa, and Kochi, and is the only scheduled airline to offer direct services to the UK’s second-largest airport.
To Heathrow, Air India will add five additional weekly frequencies, with Delhi increasing from 14 to 17 times a week and Mumbai from 12 to 14 times a week. Just like Heathrow airport, Gatwick also provides passengers with direct access to the UK’s motorway network, which will facilitate the convenience of travel by car or coach to London and south-east England. Furthermore, with 24*7 direct rail access from the South Terminal, passengers can reach Central London in under 30 minutes.
