British Airways has announced that it will increase flights from ten to 20 per week from India to the UK, starting from 16 August. The Indian Government has now allowed UK carriers to operate 34 flights per week.
Travellers may note that India is now added to the ‘amber’ list by the UK Government.
As per the new schedule, British Airways will operate 20 direct return flights connecting Delhi, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Mumbai to Heathrow.
Moran Birger, British Airways’ Head of Sales for South Asia, the Middle East, and Africa said: “It is wonderful to see connections between India and London being restored after months of uncertainty caused by the global pandemic. These additional new flights will allow our Indian customers, who have waited so patiently, to reunite with their loved ones. The flights also provide new travel options for Indian students wishing to travel to the UK and beyond for further studies, ahead of the start of a new academic year.”
