Air India to launch Delhi to Birmingham Airport service using their Boeing 787 "dreamliners"!!

 Air India and Birmingham Airport are delighted to announce that from Thursday
1 August 2013 flights between Delhi and Birmingham Airport and Delhi will operate
four times weekly, using the new Boeing 787-8 "dreamliner" aircraft

Flights will operate each Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, arriving from
Delhi into Birmingham at 1800 and departing to Delhi from Birmingham at 2130

Martyn Lloyd, Commercial Director of Birmingham Airport, explained, "This is
fantastic news for our region and we're delighted that Air India has recognised
the strong demand that lies in our catchment and will be operating the new
Boeing 787-8 "dreamliner" aircraft on the route"

"There's been significant support from the City, and indeed the region, for a direct
service to India and we're pleased to see that direct flights are now available on
a brand new aircraft which will give passengers a fantastic experience. We also
thank everyone involved who has worked tirelessly to make this happen,
particularly our Brand Ambassador for Asian Markets, Uday Dholakia"

Sir Albert Bore, Leader of Birmingham City Council, said: "Birmingham has a proud
reputation as a diverse city, with residents from the wider Indian subcontinent the
fastest growing group, according to the 2011 census. It makes a great deal of sense
for there to be a direct flight between Delhi and Birmingham, rather than just
London, and so I am delighted that Air India will be operating flights to India from
Birmingham from 1 August 2013. I am sure the service will also be welcomed by
the Midlands' business and leisure community"

The Boeing 787 "dreamliner" is a long-range, mid-size wide-body, twin-engine
jet airliner which entered into commercial service in October last year. The
256 seat Boeing 787-8 aircraft operated by Air India has a split cabin, consisting
of 18 business class and 238 economy seats. Boeing states that it is the company's
most fuel-efficient airliner and the world's first major airliner to use composite
materials as the primary material in the construction of its airframe
