Air India increase frequency of service to Amritsar from Birmingham with two flights every Saturday

Air India has increased the frequency of its non-stop service to Amritsar from twice weekly
to three times a week from Saturday 5 May 2018, just a few months after starting the route

The additional nonstop service - which increases Air India's services to Birmingham Airport
to 8 flights a week - is scheduled for Saturday evenings and is in addition to the non-stop
flight from Delhi resulting in two Air India Boeing 787 "dreamliners" on the ground at the
same time. The new Amritsar service now operates every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday

Amritsar allows direct access to the major commercial and cultural centre in the heart of
the Punjab and it is home to the Golden Temple. Air India has been a successful partner
at Birmingham Airport for over four years after launching a Delhi flight in August 2013.
This service alone has already carried over 600,000 passengers since its launch

Air India Boeing 787-8 VT-ANX operated the non-stop service from Amritsar
Tom Screen, Acting Aviation Director at Birmingham Airport, said: "Amritsar was a new
route which Air India launched from Birmingham in February this year. It's great to see the
airline increase the frequency of flights within only the first few months of this route starting"

"No other UK airport currently operates a direct service to this destination and so we expected
it to be popular. With over 200,000 British-Indian people travelling to India each year to visit
friends and relatives, and for tourism and business interests, this additional flight shows the
large demand within the region for direct Amritsar services from the Midlands" 

Air India Boeing 787-8 VT-ANL had earlier arrived non-stop from Delhi 
Mr. Pankaj Srivastava, Commercial Director and Board Member of Air India, said: "Air India is
committed to serving the needs of Indian Diaspora settled worldwide and the long-standing
need for direct connectivity between Punjab and Birmingham"

"We are delighted to add one more frequency per week between Amritsar and Birmingham
from Saturday 5 May 2018 making it a three times a week operation. We are confident that
with the strong partnership with Birmingham Airport, we together will be able to grow traffic
flow from the Midlands to India"

The additional Amritsar flight will be operated by the new Boeing 787-8 'Dreamliner' aircraft.
The cabin comprises of 256 seats with 18 lie flat business class seats and 238 in economy class
