Air India is introducing a twice weekly non-stop service to Amritsar from Birmingham Airport with the inaugural flight launching Tuesday (20 February). This will be the UK’s only direct service to Amritsar.
This new route complements the airline’s popular Delhi service which started in August 2013. The service has carried more than 600,000 passengers in the four years it has operated.
Amritsar offers access to the major commercial and cultural centre in the heart of the Punjab and the home of the Golden Temple.
William Pearson, aviation director, Birmingham Airport, commented: “It is great news that we will have direct non-stop connections to two Indian cities from Birmingham Airport with Air India. With over 200,000 British-Indian people who travel to India each year to visit friends and relatives, and for tourism and business interests, this additional destination shows the large demand within the region for direct Amritsar services from the Midlands. Air India has been a successful partner for over four years and offers great connections to India with services operated by the new Boeing 787-8 ‘Dreamliner’ aircraft.”
The Dreamliners on the service operate with 18 lie flat Business Class seats and 238 in Economy.
