Comtel Air plan more flights from Birmingham Airport to Amritsar, India, via Vienna

Comtel Air, who began flights to Amritsar, India, from Birmingham
Airport on the 1 October 2011 and planned to operate two weekly
services each Saturday and Sunday has had so much interest that
the airline plans to double the number of weekly flights
Thomas Kopetzky, Director Ground Operations for Comtel Air,
said, "We knew there was demand for more flights to India from
Birmingham due to the large Asian community living in the
Midlands and we thought that we’d eventually have to put on
more flights but we never imagined we’d have to make this
decision so soon after launching the first service. It just goes to
show that people want to use their local airport to visit their
friends and relatives out in India rather than travelling to London"
Since launching the first Birmingham flight, Comtel Air has carried
744 passengers on its four flights between Birmingham and Amritsar.
The flights, which are made on Boeing 757-200 aircraft, have a short
stop in Vienna before flying onward to Amritsar in the Punjab. This
stop is due to restrictions on the number of direct flights permitted
from the UK, imposed by the Indian Government
Martyn Lloyd, Air Service Development Director at Birmingham
Airport said, "We’re delighted that Thomas and his team have
shown confidence in Birmingham Airport, and indeed the
region, and that they’ve had such an enormous response from
the Midlands community. The success, in such a short period,
proves that people want to fly from Birmingham and shows the
enormous potential that’s available"
