British Airways is planning to increase the flight frequency between Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) and London’s Heathrow Airport. Currently, this route is run by double-daily flights throughout the week. British Airways is planning to increase the flight frequency from 14 flights to 18 flights weekly. The flights on this route will be chartered by 787-9 aircrafts with modern design and technology that offer a four-cabin configuration.
As a result of this new move, the total number of flights flying between UK and India raises from 49 to 56 per week. The airline connects UK with India via flights between London and five Indian cities- Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Chennai.
British Airways’ Head of Sales for Asia Pacific and Middle East, Moran Birger said, “As the financial capital of the country, Mumbai is a vibrant city full of discerning international travellers who are always on the lookout for great travel experiences and better travel options. With these additional flights we will be offering a convenient choice of three flights a day from Mumbai to connect to our worldwide network of over 200 destinations.”
