Air India, which already operates a hugely popular daily non-stop Boeing 787-8 service
from Birmingham to Delhi, plans to re-route two of their weekly flights in 2018 to operate
non-stop to Amritsar, the home of the Golden Temple, before continuing onto Delhi

William Pearson, Aviation Director, commented: "It is great news that we will have non-stop
connections to two Indian cities.  With over 200,000 British-Indian people who travel to India
to visit friends and relatives, and for tourism and business interests, this additional destination
shows the large demand within the region for non-stop Amritsar services from the Midlands"

Mr Pankaj Srivastava, Director - Commercial and Board Member of Air India said: "We are
delighted that we are able to announce that we are planning to commence non-stop services
between Birmingham and Amritsar twice a week, starting early 2018, recognising the consumer
demand from the Midlands' region to Amritsar, Punjab.  Air India is always very sensitive to the
needs of the consumer and is pleased to be connecting the two cities thereby adding a new city
pairing for Air India's expanding global network with the only non-stop UK Amritsar service"

The Air India service, which restarted in August 2013, has been a great success offering passengers
the opportunity to travel directly from Birmingham to Delhi and Amritsar. The service has carried
almost 500,000 passengers in the four years it has operated offers great onward connections from Delhi
with flights by the Boeing 787-8 dreamliner aircraft offering 18 business class and 238 economy seats
