Global Airlines Look to Restore Their India Bond

With popular international carriers eager to restart and launch new flights operations to India, times seem to be good for travellers with a liking for the uniquely exhilarating delights of the country.  

Key global players are either planning to restart operations, add new flights or connect to new destinations in India. Some carriers are also planning to amp up flights frequencies to some of the most prominent destinations of India.  

Operators like Virgin Atlantic and Cathay Pacific have showed interest in the Indian aviation market and have plans in place for increasing the number of flights to the nation. 

British carrier Virgin Atlantic decided to call off its services to Mumbai few years back. However, it has restarted the service and is now offering tickets deals to Mumbai apart from selling tickets on its regular flight services from Indian capital, New Delhi. 

Cathay Pacific is also planning to offer easy connections to Hyderabad by launching flights services from Hong Kong to the South Indian city from December. It currently offers tickets on international flights from Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai, and its wholly-owned subsidiary Dragonair offers tickets options for Kolkata and Bangalore. 

Maldives’ national carrier, Maldivian Airline is yet another international airline keen to start offering tickets on the flights connecting Mumbai and Chennai with Male.

Furthermore, Air Asia, the budget operator, has plans to increase its flights frequencies to numerous destinations in India it currently operates from. Flight frequency from Delhi, Kochi, Tiruchirappalli and Chennai could be enhanced by the operator.
