Air India is now enabling more Russian travellers to visit the beaches of Goa.
The national carrier now operates four weekly flights between the Goa and the Russian capital, Moscow, via New Delhi. Services run every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
The connections have been made possible by the addition of a third daily service between Delhi and Goa. The extra daily flight between Goa and Delhi is operated using an Airbus A319 aircraft, while the Delhi-Moscow uses a modern Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.
“This [third daily Goa-Delhi] flight will offer additional capacity to meet the demand for the forthcoming holiday season,” Air India said in statement.
And the airline is also expanding its Dreamliner operations on more domestic routes. The 256-seat twin-aisle aircraft is now available on two of the four daily Delhi-Bengaluru flights and one of the three daily Delhi-Kolkata services.
Air India now operates a fleet of 17 B787-8 Dreamliners.
