Air India plans global expansion with Dreamliner

“We are expanding our network with Dreamliners. The B787s will be game changer for Air India,” Ajit Singh, Minister of Civil Aviation in India was quoted by The Economic Times.

Air India has re-launched commercial flight with Dreamliner aircraft between Delhi and London on 22 May. Plans are afoot to begin full-scale global operations, with flights from Delhi to Dubai, Paris and Frankfurt by the end of this month, said Air India’s deputy general manager, G Prasada Rao.

The national carrier will also connect Delhi with Birmingham and Sydney-Melbourne from August, Rome and Milan from October and Moscow from early next year with its Boeing 787 fleet.

Out of the six Boeing 787 planes with Air India, two have been already modified following the battery incident. The remaining four Dreamliners would become operational by this month. The airline will take delivery of eight more Dreamliners by the end this year.
