Air India will be launching new flights from Mumbai to New York, Paris, and Frankfurt while resuming flights from Delhi to Copenhagen, Milan, and Vienna next year.

As part of its efforts to strengthen and expand its global footprint, the announcement comes as the airline continues to make progress in augmenting its fleet with newly-leased aircraft and bringing back parked aircraft to active service.

From February 14, Air India will launch a new daily service connecting Mumbai and New York-JFK Airport. Using Boeing 777-200LR aircraft, the flights will complement the airline's existing daily flights between Delhi and JFK along with the four-times weekly flights to Newark.

To Europe, Air India will add four weekly flights between Delhi and Milan from February 1 before launching thrice-weekly flights each from Delhi to both Vienna (February 18) and Copenhagen (March 1).

From Mumbai, Air India plans to launch new thrice-weekly services to Paris and four-times weekly services to Frankfurt during the next quarter.

All the new flights to Europe from Delhi and Mumbai will use Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft.

“A key element of our five-year transformation plan, Vihaan.AI, is to strengthen India’s global network, connecting India’s major cities with even more destinations. The introduction of these new non-stop flights to New York, Milan, Vienna, Copenhagen, Paris and Frankfurt, is another step in that journey, which will accelerate as our aircraft fleet expands. We look forward to welcoming guests and sharing Air India’s warm Indian hospitality with them,” said Campbell Wilson, CEO and MD, Air India.

With the increase of flights, Air India's flight frequencies to the US will be increased to 47 non-stop flights weekly. In Europe, the airline will serve 7 cities in Europe with 78 weekly non-stop flights – 48 to the United Kingdom and 31 to Continental Europe.
