Starting August 15, Air India will again be flying to London. The flights to London will be the first leg of the carrier’s new one-stop service from Newark Liberty International Airport to Ahmedabad, India. The flights will operate three times a week, on Monday, Thursday, and Friday, with new Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
With flights departing at 10:30 PM on Mondays and Fridays, and 12:20 AM Thursdays, business travelers in northern New Jersey and the metro New York areas can take advantage of the last departure from Newark to London. Departures from London are on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 12:30 PM, and arrive in Newark at 3:00 PM.
The 787 Dreamliner flights feature a best-in-class Economy Class service and a state-of-the-art Business Class service with 180-degree reclining flat beds. As on all Air India flights, both cabins offer a choice of outstanding Indian or Continental cuisine. And the gracious and attentive onboard service reflects India’s tradition of hospitality.
Passengers whose destination is Ahmedabad also have the option to stop over in London, either at the beginning of their trip or on their way back to the U.S., at no additional charge.
The new direct service via London to Ahmedabad is in addition to Air india’s daily nonstop flights from Newark to Mumbai, which will feature continuing service to Delhi starting August 14th. With its current daily non-stops to Delhi from JFK, the carrier will be offering an unmatched total of 17 flights a week to India from the New York metro area.
Commenting on the airline’s return to London, Air India’s Regional Manager – Americas, Ms. Vandana Sharma, said, “Our new Newark/London/Ahmedabad service offers London-bound travelers in New Jersey and the New York metropolitian areas a new and very convenient option. It also enables us to reconnect with a market which Air India served for years.”
